I Got My Life Back!

It’s amazing how quickly we get bogged down with a little of this and a lotta that and before we know it we’re being pulled in every direction until your head is spinning. That’s iphoneme! Oh yeah! I think I’m super woman. And by the time I’m finally climbing into bed, I pass out so fast I don’t even remember my head hitting the pillow. This goes on week after week until I finally have to scream, ENOUGH!

And then it’s time for a vacation.

I just got back from spending six days in Cabo San Lucas with my cousins and lawd knows I needed it. But in order to really enjoy my vacation I made one rule. No phones, no social media. I thought it was going to be difficult not to log onto facebook every day and post, or to be talking on the phone with a friend or family. But it was EASY. Ya hear me? I was happy to put my cell phone on airplane mode and leave it there until I landed back at home. I was tickled not to have my phone ringing or emails or text messages to answer. You wanna know why? I had allowed myself to be so consumed by all those things that there was no time left for me. In other words, it was time to get my life back!

Oooh-Weee!

I needed those six days to fight my addiction to constant contact. Only it turned out to be one dependency I could live without. Now that I am back at home, I’m limiting logging onto my computer and still taking time out for me. I don’t know how long this is going to last but I’m going to enjoy it while I can and when I start feeling overwhelmed all over again then I guess it will be time for another vacation. But for now… I got my life back!
