I was all set to make today’s #WW post about Naomi Campbell and how she’s tripping over this whole Cadbury chocolate thing. But I can sum it up in a few words: She’s crazy-it’s not that serious-they should have gotten her permission before using her likeness in the commercial. Now that that’s out of the way…
If you’ve been a fan of this blog for awhile, you know I’m not a fan of internet dating (check out my post titled “Internet Dating is for the Birds”). And while I don’t like internet dating, I’ve realized that I still get e-mails from 3 sites I signed up for eons ago! Late last year, I deleted my profile from two sites, but I still kept my profile up on a few others. While I half-way listened to my neighbor, who is a big fan of Match.com, I kept my profile up on them thinking I may change my mind one day and decide to give these sites a real chance. After reading OneChele’s post about internet dating (go here to read it for yourself), I decided to do delete my accounts.
I’m not going to pay a price to find a date. And I’ve always felt some type of way about that. At least 4 days a week I get e-mails notifying me of my matches and how I can contact them; from there, I’ll select one, we’ll communicate, meet, go out, and live happily ever after…NOT! Now I know this phenomenon has had great results for people; I’m just not one of them. And to minimize the clutter in my inbox, I’ve decided to no longer receive e-mails from these sites. Now all of the important stuff that I need to read will reach me, most of the junk will go to my Spam folder, and I’ve diminished the number of times I have to press the “delete” button.
What clutter do you need to clear from your life? It can be people, things, habits, or whatever is hindering your progress. I have some more clutter that needs to be deleted…some of it has already been deleted-they just don’t know it yet. 😉 Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
