I haven’t’ been able to blog lately because I’ve been so engrossed in social media and t.v. and my more recent obsession is reading national and world news articles. Reading my daily articles are one the first things I do in the morning, after prayer. It’s NOT the best way to start your day..well not for me, because you are distracted all day at work thinking about all of things happening around you. I was over an hour late to work because I was reading news articles! I’ve been in twitter wars with people over politics and the Stockley verdict and you know what I got out of it? A bunch of nothing! Blogging is one of the few things I enjoy and I placed it on the back burner. Both social media and t.v. can become a huge distraction. I had to take a break and regroup.
I guess part of the reason I’ve spent so much time distracted is because I’ve been avoiding the “what’s next” question. What are my next set of plans/goals. When you fill your head and spirit with too much of anything you lose focus and your goals become skewed. TV and social media are filled with advertisements designed to entice you, as they should it’s a multi billion dollar industry! Networks and some of the people we “follow” are constantly selling us products and or images of what they want us to buy into. It’s so easy to spend hours throughout the day inhaling it all!
Imagine if that time was spent investing into your future. I know that social media and tv is a form of escape and entertainment. What I find most interesting is people sometimes use social media to “shop” and “lust” after other people’s lives. I don’t know if that makes sense to you or not 🙂 In short, I’m working really hard at fighting distractions and putting my energy into things that that will answer my question of “what’s next”.
Until next time..
