HELP! I think I'm going through withdrawals!

Wednesday, March 01, 2017

No, not from any food or drink – from Facebook.

Yes, my friends, this year I’ve decided to go off the grid for the Lenten season (aka the next 40 days). This is super important to me for more than one reason:

1. I LIVE with my phone in my hand or by my side. ALWAYS. I don’t have a computer at home (currently) and can’t access FB at work so my phone is my connection to FB. I can’t COUNT the number of times I pick it up just to check it. It’s truly an addiction. I posted my plan…and deleted the app from my phone.
2. My husband and I sit side by side on our couch – no kids, just us – and all we do (in general) is watch TV AND “play” on our phones. Occasionally we’ll pause for conversation but…. Folks, that’s just not healthy.
3. I need to disconnect from the social media world and focus on my inner world. I’ve said all along I want to get healthy physically, mentally and spiritually. It’s kinda hard to listen for Gods voice if I’m constantly busy.

So, here’s to a deliberate decision to push aside the busy world around me and take some time to look inward.
