And this week with only two other posts written last week - all I can say is I'm working on it.
This past week has been really busy, so realistically, unless I was ultra organized and had posts written and scheduled ahead of time (which is something I aspire to) I wasn't going to post much anyway.
The baby steps I have taken are these...
*I check Social Media (mostly on my phone) during WAIT times. WAIT times include car pool, appointments, etc. It does NOT included times when I'm sitting at home with my family.
*I modified the notifications on my phone. My iPhone is truly a blessing, but like anything, it can be a real distraction if I let it!!! Can I get an Amen?
*I some of my app locations on my phone, even creating folders for Producing and Consuming!
*I'm not reading blogs or emails before I finish my Quiet Time / Bible in 90 Days reading. The only exception to this is Tweeting at 6am with my HelloMornings Friends. But that is a check in and prayer time...
I read a quote recently (sorry I don't know the original author, please let me know if you do...) that spoke to my heart on this matter.
Don't be a spectator in life, participate in it...
That's how I see this Producer / Consumer thing. As a consumer, I'm a spectator, basically just watching God work in the lives of everyone else. As a producer though, I'm able to share what God has been doing in our lives and maybe touch some lives.
Sounds crazy, but this really is my Work In Process...and I'm thrilled with the baby steps I've taken.
