So I decided I had had enough with Facebook and all that comes with it and I’ve been limiting my time over there.

However, I’m all up in a Twitter. You should be too. It is so awesome! You know those people who are always writing and jotting down notes here and there on scrap pieces of paper, napkins, their hand, or whatever is nearby at the time? Yeah, Twitter acts like that for me. I am limited to 140-characters and sometimes I just want to put a thought or an idea out there. Sometimes I am venting, sometimes I am pondering.

I’m Out

For the last few months or so I have dabbled with the idea of leaving social media all together. Well, at least the Facebook portion of social media anyway.

But you know what?  For months now, leading up to my birthday, I’ve felt nothing but dread. I would catch myself saying, “I’m old.” And just thinking about the number 46, getting that visual of the number 46 and realizing hey, that’s me,  filled me with despair.

But yesterday, on  my actual birthday, something surprised me. I FELT FREAKIN’ AWESOME AND GREAT all day long. I walked a little taller and felt wonderful! I was in a good mood and nothing bothered me. None of that gloom and doom visited me yesterday. Instead, it was filled with hope and determination. Continue reading “Three Words”
