PoV: Going Too Far?

We have advanced so much with regard to technology that it can be viewed upon as a blessing and a curse.

From My Space to Facebook and Instagram to Snapchat, social media is just going too far. I am quite sure the social media sites or apps were created for a good purpose; however, I am so tired of seeing females downgrade themselves for likes. Is this what we have come to? We are letting a picture, which can be altered define beauty. I guess no one cares about how what they post can affect potential job offerings. I just believe that certain things should be kept private and not posted at all. If you look back at the photo 20 years from now, would you have any regrets? I am at the point where they could remove all the social media sites and I would be just fine.

Has social media gone too far?

PoV: Resolutions

Remember those goals you wrote down in the beginning of the New Year to either lose weight, pursue your dreams or get more sleep…

How are they coming along?

I know committing to completing a task – either big or small – is easier said then done but I’ve found great fulfillment in successfully beginning and ending an endeavor.

This weekend,  I checked off one of my resolutions: Completing a 5k! My dear friend Alisha and I braved the wind and cold weather  to cross the finish line in about 45 minutes. We thought it would take two hours..ha!
