Consuming < Creating

One of my 2014 goals is to consume less, create more. I'm hoping my social media free weekends help to achieve that. Besides the fact that consuming these days is completely overwhelming - it's also incredibly time sucking. They should call Pinterest the time warp that leads to nowhere. Or TWTLTN. Seriously. Instagram is the hi I'm doing something amazing and I have an amazing family and friend selection. Do you? Facebook has been completely worthless to me for at least the past 1.5 years though these days I try to post an update on the daily just to remind people that I am still alive and I take pictures and blog. Everytime I want to read a blog, I will remind myself that instead I actually want to write a blog. Everytime I want to look at pictures of cool home interiors, I will say to myself 'hey, you should take some pics of your own home that you love'. I can't go on climbing the ladder of consumerism. Because, guess what, the ladder leads to nowhere. And the ladder isn't even fun. Let's be honest. Creating (or spending time with loved ones) does lead somewhere and it is fun and fulfilling. Part of this goal is to have one night a week with no tv. I didn't write this next part down but I've already been in the practice of only one hour of tv a day. It's a life sucking source and I could be saying yes to so many other things if I wasn't wrapped up in some evening drama (that will also not add any value to my life). But hey, Revenge is on, it's Sunday night and I am on day 3 of the stomach flu. I keep trying spell flu like flue. On to better days tomorrow!
