Distractions. I am so easily distracted by little things that sometimes I miss the bigger picture in life. As I’m writing this post I caught myself reading aimlessly over my Facebook feed. Updating constantly to see what was new with my friends. After Facebook I hit up pinterest to see if anything was worth pinning. The tabs keep getting toggled between Facebook, pinterest, Facebook, pinterest… all while I’m trying to write a baked pita chicken post.
I finally had to “X” out of the 5+ tabs on my Mac, so I could actually concentrate on my writing.
The other night we were all in the living room watching TV and my husband set down to play with Olivia. Once again I was distracted from her vying for our attention because I was on instagram. Guilty phone pleasures. My husband actually took my phone away and placed it out of sight. I was furious because I felt like I was in junior high and someone just took my phone away. In the bigger scheme of things I was being distracted from MY DAUGHTER.
I will be the first to admit that it’s super hard to put the phone away especially when my job relies so heavily on social media.
Will I miss a tweet?
Will I reply too late to an email?
Will I miss something on Facebook?
But what I’m truly missing out on in life is spending quality time with my family. I say that they are most important to me but I don’t treat them that way. Will this be an overnight fix? Heck no, but I’m hoping that I will improve slowly.
This is an old recipe that I resurfaced because I wanted to make an easy recipe to spend more time with my family and the old photo was just horrendous.
