I've had a wake up call I can't ignore. It's made me realize that I have not been doing the right things. I've been choosing the good things over the best things.
I need to change. And I've already started. I read scriptures with my kids over breakfast instead of letting them watch Sid the Science Kid while I blog. And I started a load of laundry and did the dishes BEFORE I even turned on the computer. And I'm NOT going to blog when I could be spending time with my husband.
Don't get me wrong - I love you guys. But I was consistently choosing "imaginary" friends over the more important, concrete things in my life. My family. My responsibilities. My personal spirituality.
It's better for me to have a clean house than a new post everyday. It's better for me spend quality time with my husband than comment on 7 blogs. It's better for me to get my kids outside than it is to spend an hour on flickr searching for the perfect picture. (As I'm tempted to do now.) It's better for me to get to sleep before 1 am than it is to have fun icons that no one even pays attention to. It's better for me to read my scriptures than find out who posted overnight.
I've ignored the Spirit's promptings for balance long enough. Too long.
So. I'm changing. I'm going to start choosing the BEST over just the good.
It's about dang time.
