Okay, so this is getting ridiculous!
Please say I'm not the only one ... I HAVE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO MANAGE MY TIME BETTER! I often go through my days distracted, finding it hard to focus on completing a single thought. One cannot be fully present when constantly feeling the need to stop for every Facebook notification or to respond to every tweet! I find myself spending whole evenings online while I fall further behind on my ever-growing to-do list. If I truly believe what I read and write, about WAKING UP and SLOWING to live this one life well, then something has got to give.
Today I am joining other women in The Unwired Mom Challenge, to put the Internet back into its proper place - as a tool. The Internet has given me a wonderful outlet to write through blogging. I love keeping in touch with you through Facebook and Instagram; I am not giving up on Pinterest or Youtube. But none of that compares to spending time with my family and engaging in real life. This challenge is not to stay off of the computer, but to be intentional about the way I spend my time on it. I love that, since I'm not one to set up unrealistic rules and expectations to break and beat myself up over.
Also, I am loving what the Hands Free Momma has to say about what really matters and the day she stopped saying 'hurry up'.
How about you? Do you struggle with slowing down and being present? What are some of the things you do to manage your time better?
