i did the "unthinkable" last night. i told facebook that we needed to take a break.
quite a few times in the last week i found myself on the deactivation page and realized last night i just needed to go through with it already. after i clicked that link it was honestly a cleansing, freeing feeling. i needed a break from the social monster that facebook can be. in some ways it just takes up too much of my time, is a distraction, and if i'm totally honest i just need to protect myself and my heart during this season i just entered. heart break is no fun i tell ya, but i still rejoice that God is bigger!
i'm actually excited to be off facebook. not saying that i won't return one day or that facebook doesn't have some great benefits (for a nosy person! i kid, i kid, but let's be honest...) i'm excited to truly remain engaged with my wonderful close friends around me and not just on facebook. face to face, cups of coffee, exploring the true art of conversation.
(me happy with my new, trendtastic hair feathers... that i love)
sorry facebook, but the real life, present life, right in front
of me is just too good not to miss out on because of you.
you make me focus too much on the bad and i think
it's better if we take a break...
