Ok here I go..
I don’t know where this came from or why, but it feels like a calling of some sort.. I just feel like I need to do this. All of this!!
Out of the blue late Sunday night, I was scrolling through Facebook, like I always do, for hours, every day, and it started to make me feel sick! It was almost midnight and I decided then and there to take a break from Facebook. Not forever, of course, but just to see how long I could go. My goal is to reevaluate my usage, and my need for a ‘Facebook fix’. I do enjoy many social media outlets, including Pinterest and Instagram, but I was feeling like Facebook was sucking the life out of me. I’d complain about not having time in my day for things, but I was just wasting the time away on my phone all day long! I feel that if I rid Facebook from my phone for a while them maybe I’ll enjoy my moments, in the moment, instead of worrying about posting about it.
I will use it again, for sure, I’m just honestly enjoying this break from it. It feels freeing! It feels like I don’t have to care about anyone else! Let me rephrase that- it’s not that I don’t care about my friends.. But I have my own thoughts and responsibilities and just a lot inmy own head. Reading post after post sometimes is overwhelming! It’s everyone’s thoughts! Everyone I’ve ever met, or ever known, everywhere, at all times. I never felt this way when I was checking it constantly. But being away for 2 days comes with a sense of a weight being lifted off my shoulders. It’s crazy!
Through Instagram I kept seeing the hashtag #100happydays. So I googled it. Basically you focus on happy things each day, for 100 days, and snap a picture of one. I fell in love with the idea and immediately signed up online! The whole 100 Happy Days got me thinking.. Lots of things make me happy! Multiple times a day! Then another thought, maybe I can break up with Facebook for 100 days? That’ll make me happy! Then another thought… there are many healthy habits that I wish I had, maybe I could try to do those for 100 days? I’m the type to give up everything I start. No matter how hard I try, I never follow through. I hate this about myself. So.. What the hell!? Why not!? It can only lead to happiness and maybe I can establish some good solid habits from it!
Here are my 100 Day’s goals:
100 Days without pop. Trying to get back into drinking water like I used to.
100 Days of flossing. I’m a random flosser. Ill go a few days then stop. Another day, then days without. Ugh.
I’m already on Day 3!
100 Days of working out! I don’t care if it’s 15 crunches one day or a 5k another, I just need to move my body every day, in some way!!
100 Days without Facebook. On Day 2! I know, this is nuts! I’m still going to be sharing pictures on Facebook through my Instagram, but I will not be logging in to browse or post.
100 Days of reading to my Brynlee. She deserves this!
100 Happy Days. Snapping a happy picture daily and sharing on Instagram.
And…. 100 Days of logging it all! I need to keep track somewhere!
🙂 Eeekk! Super pumped!
Wish me luck!
