Self Control in a Wired World

New technology is great and resourceful but it's also scary and addicting! We're constantly spending hours after hours browsing online, and while it's great that there are so many inspirational weddings blogs for brides who are researching for the perfect idea and vendors, it's also scary how much we're consumed by technology. All the moments of checking and responding to emails, updating facebook, twitter and blogs can certainly add up. We are practically glued to our chairs! I realized this can lead to a lack of self control when it comes to balancing our time & priorities. And we can easily become disillusioned by the idea of having a 'perfect wedding'. I am just as guilty of this. There are so many wedding blogs to stalk & keep up with.. whew... I need to close my lap top and spend more quality time with family & friends.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I wish for all of us to have a mindful heart and self control in this wired world. GET OUT OF THE HOUSE and have fun with your loved ones!

I love that you wrote about this. I was a wedding blog junkie and I would spend hours trolling blogs and boards getting my wedding fix. After having being married 3 months I have finally whittled my reading down to just 1 or 2 main ones and even those are occasional. The biggest thing they made me do was to doubt my own decisions and not fully embrace and appreciate my own wedding the way I should have. Needless to say after coming to a realization I decided that truly too much of a good thing is not always good
