candy crush stole my life
Tuesday, January 06, 2015
Today I deleted the game....I'd spent an hour on it before 9am, before I'd even had breakfast! That was an hour of my life I could have spent doing so many other things. I then realistically looked at my time on electronics. Facebook, words with friends, pintrest, scramble with friends, scrabble, casino, email, twitter, the news, the weather, facebook messenger, texting....It adds up to a life not lived. I wrote down the things I keep feeling sad that I haven't done, things I think about before I go to bed and remember...
sewing, painting with my kid, smoothies, reading, hot tub under the full moon, hot tea, kayaking, table games, haircut, walk the dog, adventures, being outside,getting adaptive bike for my kid, cook good food for my family, meditation, music, 'chaos crush', sparkpeople, journals, dreams, sandcastles, puzzles, seeing family and friends, 'meals with friends', experiments, activities with my kid, long bath, massage, Lexi's outdoor kitchen - my project I promised my child....my child who doesn't have as long as the rest of us...What am I thinking spending my life with my face in an electonic device! First it was to escape physical pain, then emotional pain, then to reward myselp, then to take breaks.... the breaks got longer and longer....I got seduced...must use my 'lives' ...my 'coins'....must collect more, more....I was staying up too late. I went to bed with my phone. I woke up with my phone. I'm an addict. Worse yet, I turned my partner into an addict. My child is learning to be an addict. I'm reclaiming my life. Sparkpeople is part of that. Here I go...again, committing to healthy life!
