Well, the new year is already 33 days into it. For the first 40 I have been “fasting” Facebook. I know some of you may be wondering why I would do such a thing. Well, I will tell you. It was becoming an obsession. I like to think that I live simply. Though I value technology, I can get caught up in things that take up time where I should be doing other things. Most everyone is on Facebook. Most everyone would agree that it can supply some good thought provoking conversations, but most of the time you are not really connecting with people and you play games just to relax. If I were to be perfectly honest, I haven’t really missed it. (My “fasting ends on February 10th.) What I thought was interesting was that a friend of mine who is on there as well didn’t even think to ask why she hadn’t seen or heard from me on Facebook for the last 33 days. Another person did tell me they missed the interesting posts I made, but understood the need to get off. I was just going to set something up for the future of my posts/blogs and I have forgotten my password! I will have to create a new one which, may not be a bad idea with all of the hacking going on. I will say that I have decided to go through my list of “friends” and decide who I will continue to have “relationship” with and who I will not. I find it sad that most of the people who I have “friended”; we don’t really “talk”, “share” or “communicate”. Others, I have great conversations with. But until that time, I get to write more of what is on my mind. I enjoy communicating through the written word. It helps me lay everything out so that I can see it more clearly. I have an interest in what others may think about my opinion. Thanks for listening, um, reading!
