A few weeks ago I upgraded my phone and in the midst of it all, I decided to leave without updating all of my old stuff to my new phone. Secretly I had no desire to hear the ping of another email come through. I wanted a clean slate with an empty voicemail and all that free storage. Oh, it felt so good when those phone calls came through and I didn’t immediately know who it was, and then knowing they couldn’t leave a message because I had yet to set up my voicemail. I am such a rebel, I know.
I just needed to check out. I needed the entire last two weeks to stay up late with my family, have a few date nights, eat comfort food, wear my hair in a pony tail, ignore some emails and neglect to return calls and texts. I used to have such a fear of missing out. Always saying yes, even if it wasn’t right. I am praying that I will find peace in not putting so much on my plate. I am learning to say no more and making an effort to only do what feels 100% right.
2015 is my year to simplify it all. My wardrobe, my family and my time. Just like my phone, my life is completely getting stripped of the baggage. I am putting my faith first and concentrating on my family. I am making a conscious effort to build a stronger foundation for the five of us. This year my husband and I are going on more dates and taking more family vacations. It feel so cliche to say in 2015 I am “letting it go”, but truly I am not going to do what kinda feels right. I am going to trust my heart and do what is important.
Join me in removing the fear of missing out from your life. Our time is precious and should be spent doing what makes us happiest.
