Good for you, Lisa! I think its something that I need to repeatedly be more vigilant about. Its just so easy to get sucked in and then be like, Oh, man, whered the last 90 minutes just go? Moving the apps so that they are out of sight is a great idea. Ive done this with my Facebook and Twitter too (though Twitter isnt my downfall, its Facebook, Instagram, and reading blog posts in Feedly) but Ive kept Instagram a one-click app (i.e., the app is on my home screen and not in a folder or on another page). I just did a little sweeping up in Feedly too and I cant recommend it enough. Our interests change, as do our reading preferences, so it makes sense to edit the content we consume for better clarity. Were both in recovery! So youre in good company. LOL. I think just being aware of these things is a step in the right direction. I love the calmness and inspiration from your life that you share on your blog and when I added your blog to my Feedly reads I deleted some others. I dont/cant always do that but its nice when I am so that Im not just adding to the pile of things I want to read but actually *refining* my reading list.

Hi Sherri, Thank you so much on your kind comment about my flowers. Im relived to hear that Im in such good company with the ebb and flow of these feelings. Do you eventually become better at becoming more aware of when its coming on? Today was a great day - sleep helped - and I feel like Im on the other side of it. Heres to more days like this when things feel joyful... for the BOTH of us! Im so happy I found you through this 30 in 30 challenge. :D Warmly, Lisa
