Time For A Facebook Vacation!

I disabled my Facebook account. Egads, this girl has flipped her lid. It was time for me to put action to my words from last week and stop making "buttprints in the sands of time." I have to be honest, the first couple days were hard, but I really don't miss Facebook one bit!

When you need permission to take a break from social media.

You think I'm crazy, right?

That's ok. Maybe I am. But Facebook is a real time sucker for me. Five minutes here, five minutes there. It adds up to a good chunk of time each day. Five minutes easily becomes 20, 30, or 60 minutes.

Plus, I was getting caught up in other people's drama. I have enough drama in my own life, thank you very much. I really don't need extra from people I barely know. 

There are 86,400 seconds in each day. Choose wisely.

I don't know about you, but I'm always wishing there were more hours in a day. Getting rid of Facebook seems like a super easy way to ensure a little more productivity in my day.

Please, don't think I'm saying that you should disable your Facebook account too. Or that Facebook is evil. Neither could be further from the truth.

This girl is taking a lovely little vacation from Facebook to live more intentionally in the real world. How long? Not sure yet. At least a few months. Possibly a year. Maybe for good. We shall see.

I'm not completely crazy, I kept my blog's Facebook page. Come "like" me!

My desire is that you and I will become better stewards of our time. 

I'm not sure how I'll do in the real world, with all this extra time on my hands. I might have to do more face to face socialization to keep myself from going nuts! I'll definitely go for lots of long walks, read more books and start a new prayer journal. I may even take up a hobby or two to keep myself occupied. Or bring out that dusty Fender hiding in the closet. Who knows! 

I pray this week that you will make choices that allow you to live simply, love abundantly and be the special person God's created you to be!

Maybe that means ditching Facebook for a season of life. Or simply taking some time to get more organized or to set priorities. Only you can choose what works for you.

  1. Are we the same person? LOL~ I just did the same thing. A facebook sabbatical. I was finding myself on fb more and more and logging in and scrolling when I should have been doing more important things. I started to realize that I have so many cyber friendships, but not too many one on one, real face to face interaction. And I didn't like it. I love my fb friends, but they are surface relationships. I need the dig deep kind of friendships in this particular season that I am in. The ones that engulf me and make me feel secure and loved.
    So kudos to you for taking time off. I suspect it was much needed. Enjoy your time away from it!

    1. Haha, maybe we are! I took a break for the same reasons. Even though most of my interactions were with real friends, it was just too much. I am at the end of week one and it's been quite lovely having more free time and less drama. :) are you still on a FB sabbatical or did you join the cyber world again?
