Important Things #14 ~ Limit Television

Well now I don’t even know how to write this one because I haven’t had Television (cable, etc.) for over 6 years!  It has just been a choice that I made a long time ago.  Why did I choose to Limit Television for my household?  Because I got nothing done when it was on!!  haha  Hey, I know my limits & my limitations.  When I watch TV I completely ZONE OUT!!!  How many of you would admit to doing that… or to your children doing that!?  haha  Well, I am a big girl & I will admit that I do in fact zone out from any sort of reality if I am watching television.  So, to save myself from getting absolutely nothing done… I turned it off!  Do I miss it sometimes… heck yeah!  We do have television sets in our house, however they are merely hooked up to VCR’s or DVD players and are used for special family movie nights.  It definitely makes watching TV a special “experience” together instead of a drain on our time together or projects needing to get done.

CHALLENGE: Can you go an entire week without ANY television??

QUESTION: What ways have you or your family limited television to gain more family or productivity time?

Have a productive TV-less day!

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...
