The Lenten season is upon us again and unlike last year, I’m going to “do without” some part of my life for the forty-four day period. This year, Lent begins on March 6th and ends on April 18th. After much deliberation, I’ve decided to take a leave from social media for the forty-four day period. It’s not an easy decision, but I feel that my time would be better spent focusing on other areas of my life.
I do try to post two meaningful posts each day, a devotional from “24 Hours a Day” and “Language of Letting Go” and I’m mindful that there are those that enjoy reading those each day. I’ll be leaving a link on my FB page so those people can still have access to those readings.
For the most part, I feel like I waste too much time on social media. I’m planning on using the time to work on parts of my life that I will be better served. Photography will be at the forefront of the list of things I’ll be doing. I also plan on doing some writing and reading during the days as well. Who knows what else I use the time for, but I’m sure on the other side, I’ll have used the time more wisely.
