I was once again considering going ack to a smart phone. After last week’s storms and power outage and sitting in traffic, I thought a smart phone was….well, smart. And then I went to verizonwireless.com and saw their new plan. It turns out I would need to spend almost $50 more each month for their new and improved plan.
I debated back and forth. I kept looking at this pretty phone. Did I mention this phone was purple?!? I wanted this phone, I wanted to play with the apps….but I didn’t want to spend more $$ on a phone.
I just want to be able to play when I am not near wifi. Like when I am in traffic and husband is driving, like when we travel…ummm….like 2-3 times a year. I don’t go anywhere and when I do go out of the house, I don’t always have to be connected. And y’all know I love me some social media.
But I think….
I have been too connected to my computer and my peeps.
I have not been connected enough with myself.
I am slowly coming to the realization that I just want to slow down. I feel like I need more time for myself. My family. My life.
Don’t get me wrong, I love social media. Twitter is where it all started – I found friends, real friends. Blogging is a lifeline. I need this space to get out of my own head. When I am feeling good and doing good (not just on the losing weight front, but the mental health aspect too) I blog more often. Or maybe because I am blogging more, I am doing better. Maybe blogging really is my therapy. I love that people read my blog but I do blog for me.
I love my friends. Online and in real life. I am lucky to have so many fabulous people in my world.
I just need a bit of a break. Not a total, cold turkey, no twitter or facebook diet….that is just nuts. But a less frequent or obsessive approach couldn’t be a bad thing.
So, no smart phone for me.
Instead, I will work on finishing what I start. AND I will continue taking care of and doing what’s best for me !!
So, if I am less than present online….still love me, ok?!?
