[Day 13]

Today is day 13 of my social media fast and to be honest I haven’t missed it very much. I did find myself checking email more often and checking the news.  Next time I will need to delete the news channels too.  It will be interesting to see if I am able to control the amount of time on them after tomorrow.  My hope is that it will be easier now.  More to come…

[what…no facebook?]

Today is day one of my social media fast.  No Facebook, no twitter, no Instagram and no Pinterest.  I’ve done ok so far.  I haven’t even had a desire to look.  I also haven’t picked up my phone as much.  I read a few chapters in my book, went bike reading with Olivia through the neighborhood and will read some more when I get home from church.  Overall a good first day…


I didn’t want to do it. I tried to talk myself out of it. I wanted butter pecan ice cream instead. But I did it…

And yes I will hurt in the morning. Maybe I will get brave enough to actually post this for others to see. But until then this will have to do.


So here we are a couple of days after the 4th and it seems that summer is already on it’s way out.  Isn’t true that we spend so much time in the current season wishing it was the next season instead of just soaking up where we are today?  The sun is out bright today and it’s going to be hot but that’s ok.  It wasn’t that long ago that we were complaining about the cold.  So here’s to today and all the blessings it brings.
