Day 12-less social media and more friendship(31 days of less and more)

Today's challenge:
Do an internal Facebook audit.  Are there so-called friends in your feed who are driving you crazy or causing you stress?  Un-friend them.  Remove yourself from groups you’re not interested in, un-like any pages you are no longer interested in, and turn off all notifications.Then do the same for any other social media networks you participate in.
Now, spend some time thinking about the people in your real-life circle.  Think of two people that you love and respect that you’d like to cultivate deeper friendships with and write them down.   Pray for that person, invite them for coffee, send notes of encouragement or short texts or emails.

Too much of anything is never a good thing!Most of us have a smart phone and not a stupid phone,that is what my kids call it.We can text,check email,facebook and now I have even fallen for Pinterest.There is an app for almost everything!We have become more disconnected and less active outside because of it.There is a very powerful video I saw a while back.It showed different scenarios where people were with someone but all you could see was a scarf or crayons coloring on their own.You knew someone was there.The other person was on their phone not paying attention too them.Near the end this Dad puts down his phone and the crayons are moving and his daughter appears.We don't want to lose sight of what is important or ignore our loved ones all together.

This is definitely going to be a hard challenge! I much prefer being social in person but I keep making friends but  they are busy or in another state.I will definitely give it a try though.

I am grateful for
