new goals. and some new free time.

in all reality i decided i needed to change a couple of things in my life.

winter/spring season is the busiest time of year for me, and this year i am expecting havoc.
so, consequently, i did something incredible [okay maybe not for you, but for me it was.]

i deactivated my Facebook.

if you know me at all, you will realize how much of a miracle this really is. i seriously could be considered a Facebook addict.

but, i realized that it honestly was taking up so much of my time and it wasn't worth the stress of feeling like i'm constantly out of time.

after i deactivated it, however, i immediately felt like i had hours more to my day.  it was a great feeling.  

-i read 80 pages out of the full-length edition of The Count of Monte Cristo.
-i took a nap.
-i played sunday hymns on the piano.
-i practiced harp.
-i studied for the SAT.

never. would i get those things done on a sunday. AND. be finished by 9:00. 

i feel free.

i decided to become service oriented.

i'm going to try something new with my blog.  every day i'll start out a post with an act of service that i did sometime that day.  service brings true happiness, and during a stressful part of my life, [and with the free time i now "have" away from Facebook] i can focus on helping out others, and hopefully start a ball rolling.  i think by sharing it with people who read this blog, that hopefully it will empower you to do the same, and see the impact of it in your life :)


  1. i just finished the count of monte cristo. so so so SO good :) keep on truckin' through it. it gets boring at some points, but it's totally worth it.

    1. ah thats so good to hear, 200 pages through now and i'm still bored to tears!
