Nicole wrote a great post on social media that I would encourage you to check out HERE. After reading her post it really got me thinking about my own social media use and a decision that I made last week regarding it. This past week I kind of hit a breaking point and had to have a come to Jesus meeting with myself to force myself to PUT.THE.PHONE.DOWN. I decided right then to delete all the social media off my phone and just see where things went from there. After a restful weekend of absolutely zero social media time I realized exactly what God wanted from me. Each weekend I am going to delete all the social media apps on my phone and spend quality time with my family. This past weekend was one of the best I can remember. It was full of sunshine and intentional time with my boys, and you know what? when I went to re-download all my apps on Monday.. I didn't crave them as much. I have spent very little time on Instagram, Twitter, etc. this week and it just feels good. I had become so dependent on my time online and it was really affecting me. I am a seriously busy person and I should not be spending the little free time I have plugged in to a device. What ways have y'all limited social media in your lives? Always looking for suggestions in this area!
