Today I deleted my facebook account. I missed it, missed knowing what was going on in people’s lives and being connected with them, seeing their pictures. I realized how much I relied on that to feel connected to people instead of just being with people or talking to them. I miss those far away, especially those I love that love me, but those close to me had greater meaning and prominence. I was more present during band practice today. I focused more on my kids and made more meaningful moments with them. I was more present. And I see where I had a dependency on that which is far away rather than focusing on the task at hand. I tend to want to connect socially with those far away rather than work on present tasks with those in my path now. My journey has shifted. I am always learning. I will always love those near and far who are in my circle of friends and family, all fellow journeyers, always. I am loyal and cut like that, but I must focus on teaching my children and preparing them for life and teaching them to serve here. So each day will have challenges and distractions, but with God’s help, I will focus more and more on the moment and task at hand and less and less on those things. And Lord willing, we will learn and grow every day and grow in wisdom and knowledge and understanding to serve God and those He made better.
