I did it!! Yes I did! I removed myself from all the insane Facebook games and waste of time nonsense that was eating up my day and night! Now for those of you who have never been sucked into that world of vicarious living through a small weird looking avatar I applaud you! But for those of you who are like me and were playing the games you know how difficult this separation can be. What will happen to my crops? The wedding I was so diligently preparing for? I don't know nor do I care!
I'll tell you what I care about -- my children, our future and living a great life! You see I home school our children. I always have, I love it for the most part! I enjoy seeing their eyes widen with new understanding. I love being a part of those first few moments when something we've been trying to understand suddenly makes perfect sense. And I really love reading their creative stories first hand. I also have a home business! Well at least I used to have a thriving home business that was growing by leaps and bounds. I had to take a step back for several years to deal with some personal issues. Now it's 2011 and it's a brand new year! My business is growing again thanks to some amazing new partners and I am excited to be heading in the right direction again. Then it hit me! Facebook is stealing my sanity! It's taking my time and not giving me anything in return (except a sore butt)! So I removed all game applications and all the 'game friends' I had. You know what I noticed, posts by my real friends. It was amazing, all these posts that I hadn't seen before because my wall was filled with game requests.
So, again it's 2011, a brand new year. I am back on track in my life. I am a SAHM, a Home schooling Mom and a Home Business Owner! And you know what? I LOVE what I do! I get to be an integral part of my children's daily lives and I get to impact the lives of hundreds of families through my business. Truly, I am blessed beyond words.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 (Amp) "For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome. Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you. Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart."
