In a recent random perusal through Facebook (which I rarely do these days), I happened upon this video and you need to click on that link and watch it.
It made me cry, legit.
That video speaks to all the reasons why I ditched Facebook in the first place. But it also brought me into awareness that it's not just Facebook. I'm on Instagram like all the time. It wasn't a problem for me because it's not negative to me like Facebook can be - but it's still something that's disconnecting me from my life. And I'm playing games like all the time too. And I need to stop that.
Why are we so addicted to our phones and technology and social media?
I hate that I'm a part of it. And I want it to change.
So I'm going to work on that.
On a similar vein, and also in a recent random perusal through Facebook (seems I've got two good things out of it lately), I happened upon this video, for Colbie Caillat's new single, Try. This made me cry too! I immediately added it to my Spotify playlist and let Maraea listen to it. This is the message I want her to hear as she grows up.
Speaking of Maraea, I need to vent about some stuff there too but I just can't tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe tomorrow there will be a resolution I can tell you about. We'll see.
