Finding happiness

I have wanted to delete my facebook for awhile now. The only reason I haven't is so I can post pictures and videos of Chase for friends and family to see. I don't have an iphone so I can't send pictures and videos that way.

Do you ever wonder if you would be happier if you weren't constantly comparing your life to others?

In the shower tonight I was fantasizing about my perfect mother's day. Then I realized even if I was given that mother's day I probably wouldn't allow it or enjoy it. Mom guilt.

I'm going to be taking a step away from social media. It's so funny how when you want something it seems like everyone else has it. I'm happy for them but it still stings.

I don't want to read about everyone's perfect mother's days with the flowers and the cards and the crafts.

I'm not sure how long I will be away. I'll probably still post pictures. I may even write blog posts. I won't be reading blogs though.


  1. Do what you have to do girl.

  2. :( I will miss you. I hope you find happiness. I will get a card for mother's cool with that....we just bought some practical things for the family and That just makes sense for us...
    Thinkng of you friend :)

  3. I've been there before but on a other spectrum. Being an infertility sufferer I was constantly asking WHY. I gave up blogs, twitter, facebook for quite a few months and it was SO good for mine and my husbands sanity. I would love to have a park day with you and Chase. Give me a text when you're free and take care of you!

  4. I have definitely contemplated getting rid of my Facebook, but instead I just weeded out almost everyone except for family and very close friends. It has seemed to help. As always do what you feel is best for you :)

  5. I'm sorry. Social media has changed everything. I compare myself quite often as well. I usually feel like crap after I do, it is not a good place to be. I just try to remind myself that most people only put the good on blogs and Facebook. I hope taking a break will be good for you.

  6. Hope you find your happiness girl! Come back when you can!
