Pick Before You Click

I try to be pretty strict with myself when it comes to the internet. Before getting lost in Pinterest or immersing myself in blogs I ask myself “Is my homework done?” “Can a load of laundry be started” “What is for dinner” …. you get the idea. I try to use fun computer time as a treat or reward. But still I am guilty of spending two hours online instead of just one all too often.

Earlier this week Ann Voskamp shared this wonderful printable that takes it even a step further for me.

I printed it out and hung it next to my computer to be a soft and sweet reminder to keep my focus on what is truly important.

Today I will be praying for others as I’d like to be prayed for.

I know what you mean, Laura. I have all those "guilt" feelings about the time I spend on the net. This little sign is a nice reminder! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Laura, I saw this the other day on Pinterest and it really hit home for me! I have spent so much time on Pinterest lately that I have ignored my blog and other things I should be doing. Thanks for the reminder again. Hugs and blessings, Nan
