The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 135: REPROGRAM YOUR LIFE, SOCIAL MEDIA IS NOT REAL
Today’s Lesson: Social media is not your real life, so stop treating it as such
On this journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God it is so alluring to be sucked into the vortex of social media. Spending hour after hour scrolling through.
I was recently walking on the sand at a beach and as I observed the beautiful scenery I also observed the people at the beach with their heads down looking at their phones or taking selfies and personal photo ops.
I remember grieving for them saying how come they can't just enjoy these amazing moments in life without being glued to their phones. Then God took me to the school of don't judge others, look at yourself.
He had me research my own personal screen time, and I was in utter shock. It had to be wrong, I remember blinking my eyes and shaking my phone. My average screen time was not.....(to embarrassed to say) !!!!. Oh but it was. What was the scary part I had no idea.
Now I monitor and plan my social media time and have placed notifications when I have reached my set limit. So far it has worked, I love it. And I have noticed a drastic difference….I’m living intentionally and in real time.
Until tomorrow try to live in real time instead of looking at flowers on a post go outside smell the roses and enjoy the moment. And try not to post it! #reprogramyourlife
With Beautiful Love
