Feeling Dumber

I think it is possible to become stupid after having been smart. As I sit around with my iPhone watching other people’s lives via their Facebook posts and Tweets I think I am actually killing my brain cells. I heard a voicemail that included my voice while speaking to someone else and I was almost embarrassed to sound that way. Talk about ghetto! I didn’t bother to enunciate most of the words and I shortened the sentences to stupid.
I am going to give myself a break from social media for the first week of the new year. It is not a resolution or a promise. More a pact I am making with my brain. If I fill it with wisdom it will hold it and help me not be appear average.
I plan to spend the first week of this year focusing on smart things. I am going to try to re-join my writing circle, do some yoga, read a real novel with a spine, not on my phone and go to the gym. I am going to meditate and pray 2 hours a day. I will make task lists and keep my closet organized. Pay attention when I am driving and in conversations. Be present in the minutes in my life, big or small. I read today while Facebook-watching, Make this the last year that you say, “This is my year!” I was like AMEN!
For me I plan to make this "The Year" in so many ways! I am not putting anything off and I am not making any excuses. I have a lovely man on the horizon, a beautiful, strong, kind, smart and intelligent child; I am strong, healthy and apparently very pretty. So I am done with the excuses. No more next year for me. In 2012 I will walk out my purpose and go get everything that was designed for my success. I am not waiting for it to come. My meditation will be on ways I can put my feet forward. I believe that old adage “if you make one step God will make two”. So I am stepping, and I hope you do to!

Just open up the week with some spiritual focus and mental growth, I have my plan develop your own. Even as I write this I know I will end up posting my progress on Facebook or Tweeting my feelings. So maybe I will just resolve to send and not receive. We will see how it goes. But I want to be smarter and more accomplished because it is my God-given right and yours too! So skip the resolutions and let’s make a pact, an agreement with ourselves, a commitment to honor what we believe we must do to live life to the fullest and that we will get done no matter what. Since the Romans thought 2012 would be it, let’s live it like it’s our last so that the rest will be overflow!
