face time

While face time is the name of a wonderful feature on the iphone, that is not what I am referring to here. I am referring to something much more real. Lately, I have found myself completely absorbed by the internet and blogs. I know I am not the only one that compares my life to those posted online. It has really taken a toll on my self esteem. I realized that I look at my friends blogs or pintrerest substantially more than I spend time with them. It has left me in a lonely place that I don't like. I am done with it. 

So with that said, I am taking a break. No blogging. No reading blogs. No pinning. No Facebook, although I deactivated that awhile ago. No twitter. For however long I need to. Starting today. I am going to make serious effort to spend real time with friends and family. I am going to spend time doing things I love to do, and figuring out who I am again. And I am not going to blog about it. This will be difficult, considering I am a graphic designer and work on my computer. I think I can do it though. Wish me luck.

In one month I will be back. Hopefully with a renewed sense of who I really am. With no desire to obsess and compare myself to others lives, careers, money etc. This is going to be a good month.
