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.
