Break Up With The Internet.......

.......or at least stop giving it most of your valuable time.

I get sucked into the Internet throughout the day. just consumed me.  I was looking through various sites and unconsciously comparing my life to others.  Doubting the things I am currently doing/working on because they cannot be as fabulous as the people I look at.  People.  People I do not know.

Certain quotes would randomly pop up stating.......If you are bored, you need to shed your current life for another,

Are you 100 % happy with the people/person in your life? If no, you need to leave them and travel down that wide open road to a new happier life and pursue your dreams.

"You should be living your dreams"  "Don't settle" "You should have that dream job that gives you the Lexus"

If you are generally happy with your 9-5 job, your office job, your blue collar, white collar no collar job.......then you are living the dream.

I sat back and realized that......over time....the Internet, if your not careful, paralyzes you, gives you self doubt, depression, anxiety.  If you are on it enough, the search engines know how to throw certain ideas, wants, needs (needs that may not really be a need at all),  your way.

If you are not careful, you will get sucked into this vortex of insanity.   You will keep wanting more, doubting, wondering if you have enough friends, if you are traveling to all the cool places.....that your Friday night at home watching a movie is not good enough.

If your home on a Friday night watching a movie, your Friday night is just fine.

Things like that will make you doubt what you are doing.  Thinking you should be on a 24hr high and everything is perfect.  That there are no ups and downs in life.

Focus on making you better not being a version of someone else.
Focus on making your relationships better not wishing you had someone elses relationship.
Read that book, not their page
Learn something new and not learn more about "them"
Make a friend and not friends with a social media page.
Take a walk and see the world around you.......not the world around profiles.
Appreciate the little things around you and watch how big your world becomes.

YOU are enough
YOUR life is just as fabulous as the ones you follow.

Go On With Your Bad Self

This past election had so many people outraged.  Why?  Because it seemed that the side that did not get their way had to through a temper tantrum. They had to have paid days off because they were sad? So much anger because a women did not get elected.  She did not get elected because the majority of the votes did not want her.  They did not believe in what she stood for and they did not want more of the same.  End.

Bratty celebrities threatening to move out of the country if Trump won.  Well, your still here.  They make more money then they will ever need.  Their job is to entertain us, stick with that.  There are a few that actually put time and effort into helping humanity.  Making the world a better place.  Focusing on positives.  You don't hear much about the ones that do that because it's boring.  It does not make news.  You only hear about the ones who make a scene for the publicity.  To stay in the lime light.  So many people want to tear things apart instead of coming together.

Like him or not, he is our President.  He isn't perfect, but he tells it like it is.  He stomps on the media as they should be stomped on.  They lie to benefit themselves.  To get ratings, they focus on trivial, material, idiocies. We hear to much over saturated BS.  Nothing that stimulates the mind.  Let's give him a chance to see what he can do for America.

We have a right to vote for who we want, but if your choice does not win, it wasn't because the world is out to get you or hates women or hates people who are different.  Yes, there are people that do, but there are also people who hate animals, being around people.....there are just assholes in the world. 

We have more power than we realize.  You can make the world around you a better place.  You can make someone's life better just by being nice or helping them out or giving them a smile.  You can make your mind better by opening a book, learning something new, focusing on something positive for you and your family.

Don't get all caught up on the idle chatter.  Wasted words.  Focus on doing good with you and your life and your community and make it better. You got this!
