i haven’t felt like myself over the last two weeks.
last night i discovered the reason why. to test my theory, i made a decision to skip out on one of my nightly (and daily) habits (*cough*cough* “Dots” *ahem*). instead of quickly jumping into bed, only to play my usual billion rounds of Dots and staying up way past my bed time, i brushed my teeth for what felt like a good hour, flossed (i know i’m not the only one who has a hard time remembering to floss), plugged my phone in to the charger, prayed (i hadn’t been doing this lately. *insert ashamed look*), and went to bed.
this morning i woke up feeling energized. i showered, dried my hair on medium (instead of rushing through it on high power and getting frizzier hair), actually used a facial cleanser for the first time in years (oh Burt’s Bees, you are magic), put on a bit of makeup (first time in weeks), PRAYED!!!, and left for work on time.
and today i feel like myself. “miracle”, right?
i let that game consume my life.
this morning i reflected on the past 2 weeks, and realized that as nic and i talked sometime this weekend, i sat there playing that stupid game the entire time. no wonder he always rolls his eyes at me when my phone is in my hands. not going to lie, i feel horrible about it.
so i’m happy to report that i’ve just permanently deleted this game from my phone. and i don’t feel one ounce of remorse. the only remorse i feel is for all of that time i lost and for the attention that i should have given to my husband but didn’t.
there are so many more distractions i can eliminate from my life. and so many good things i can incorporate. i have goals. big goals.
and don’t worry. i’ll share them. they’ll be on my june goal list, which i’ll be blogging about later this week, along with a look back at my may goal list and how it went.
moral of the story is, if you’ve never played the game “dots”, good for you! and keep on going!
if you do have it, and you are addicted to it like i was, i challenge you to remove it from your life.
that goes for any addictions really.
you’ll feel so much better, i promise.
