Hello...wake up and smell reality people
I know, I know. I live in Israel and have a kosher phone (for all those out there that don't know what that is, it's JUST a cell phone. No texting, no camera, no internet, no way to get cute little ringtones that e/o else has.) So you might think I'm naive living out here in my own little world. But I'm alive! I spend as little time online as I can a day and I live life with things and people and not just screens.It's liberating! Try deleting some of your social media accounts. If you need linkedin, keep it, but get rid of your other social media. Do you remember there was once something called mail, and then that turned into email? Do you even take the time to write more than three word sentences anymore? Even to the people you used to love the most? I say "used to" because the more we get involved in screens and virtual "friends" the more we love our screens, and the less room there is inside of our hearts to love people, ideas, G-d, and the world.Try disconnecting. I dare you! ;)

For many of us we're powerless and cannot control it. Surprisingly that's the greatest gift -- the realization that I simply can't control it and that I need G-d's help. G-d wants your freedom, has the power to give it to you, and will be happy to give it to you once you're willing to allow Him to take the controls. If you have failed whenever you tried to manage, it's time to give Him the control. He's the only one who can manage outcomes. Live on His terms and it will restore your sanity. You just have to want it.
