Tonight I’m beginning a two week break from Facebook. I’ve once again realized how much mindless time I spend on it and think being away for a while will do me some good. I’ve left instructions on my page on how to access the daily posts I do for those who really want to continue to read them.
I’ve done a break from Facebook before, namely during previous Lenten seasons. After much contemplation, this past year I didn’t take the usual hiatus during that time period. Although this break won’t be nearly as long, I’m thinking it will suit its intended purpose.
So as of 11 p.m. tonight (five minutes from the current time) I’ll no longer be perusing Facebook countless times during the day. I’ve also uninstalled the FB and messenger apps from my phone to aid in reducing temptation. I’m planning on doing quite a bit more reading and writing and will also be sharing some of what I’ve learned on this blog.
