Change can be hard, ya’ll and I’ve been finding myself right smack in the middle of some major changes. Many I’ll share with you soon here on the blog, one I’ll share with you today.
One of my goals for 2014 was to cut back on social media. I’ve done this social media “fast” before but honestly, I’ve never been as completely committed to it as I am this time. In the past, I’ve given myself a week or two where I would limit my internet usage to just “work” or certain times of the day but I’ve never set a goal in my HEART to focus on what matters more and permanently limit my time on social media & the internet. Much like starting a diet and depriving yourself of certain foods, I started craving the internet even more once I limited myself. It’s been hard y’all, then I remembered this quote from John Maxwell
If you want to see change in your life, change something you do daily
It reminds me that change isn’t always easy and sometimes you have to take it one day at a time and make those small changes. If that seems overwhelming, take it one hour or even one minute at a time. The biggest thing is to stay consistent with pressing towards your goals. Remember that
consistency is the key to the breakthrough
Frankly, there are days when I don’t reach the mark and I want to give up but I remind myself there is too much riding on me staying the course.
So…. I keep at my goals to limit my social media and internet time and focus on promoting and building my business, becoming a better wife, mother, friend and person and reconnecting with the important things in life; God, people and love.
I’m sharing my struggles here, not only to stay accountable but to also let each of you know that you’re not alone in wanting positive change for your life and not always reaching the mark for that goal each day. We’re in this together. In the words of Dory from Finding Nemo, “just keep swimming”!
P.S. Join me later this week as I unveil a few surprises including a new series for the month of February.
