Hoarding: When Too Much is Truly Too Much

We’re all quite aware of what clutter is and how it can not only adversely affect how our household functions, but also how it can also have a negative impact on our health. But this isn’t the full extent of how bad things can actually get.…

Throughout the world, several hundred thousand children and teens are diagnosed with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. It is a prevalent disease, impacting an estimated 200,000…

Diagnosing Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy in Children

Creating an environment where children remain healthy and happy is not always within a parent’s control, particularly during their early years. Medical issues may cause a variety of concerns for parents and their children that are both difficult to diagnose and a challenge to treat with…

I’ve recently had to put myself on a social media diet in order to prevent myself from going totally insane with the stresses of life and the state of our country. I’ve had to do a little trimming of people and organizations that I follow on Facebook to prevent “Breaking News” stories from plaguing my time line.

There is only so many times a day I can care about the new Kardasian love interest or baby daddy.

And everyone knows that politics is my thing, but I have stopped following CNN and any political affiliated Facebook page. There is only so many times I can call our president an unnatural and disgusting freak of nature. And there is only so many times I can get into Facebook debates with idiots who have no moral foundation.

I just want to discover something that makes me happy and also means something to me. This blog has always allowed me to express my anger at the world, but throughout the years of writing this blog, I have never posted about what makes me really happy.

Its been a week of partaking in this social media diet and I must say, I have started opening my mind more and enjoying other endeavors. If we really think about the daily goings on in our lives, social media takes up more than five hours of our day. We are constantly checking our Facebook pages and looking for pictures from our friends and frenemies to see who is doing better at life.

We often forget that social media is a gate way into only the good moments of our lives. Who posts pictures about a bad break up or when you are taking a huge dump on the toilet? We glance at these fabulous moments and we hope and wish that some day we will have a wonderful relationship like a friend or relative, not knowing that some individuals are experiencing domestic violence and even going through a divorce. Life is more than live feeds and filtered photos. I will still continue to use my Facebook to stay in contact with friends and family, but I refuse to get so immersed in the story of the day or the intricacies of other people’s lives that I forget to live.
