I clearly remember the first day picking up my phone and hitting the bird app and then remembered how fast I committed to a Social Media outlet! I put the phone down and didn’t know what to do. Three minutes later I picked up the phone again wanting to click on the app and had to put the phone back down.

Can the cravings be curbed? All I know is that it taught me to focus more on what’s important and that mentioning 11:11 is my favorite time is not necessary.  Getting back 40 minutes of my day to spend it with my loved ones and growing my spirit is PRICELESS.

Now that is something to tweet about!
