Internet Woes.

I only deleted my Facebook yesterday and I feel like I'm trying to find other things on the internet to fill that time...instead of getting things done that I really need to get done!

There have been multiple times (already!) that I have been tempted to just jump back on. All I have to do is login and my account is back up and running. Deep down I know that is NOT what I want to do. I know I don't want to get sucked back in to all the drama and reading about people's lives that I don't care about anyway. I don't want to do it. But I do want to do it. So weird, right?

Sounds kinda like this... "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do." -Romans 7:15

Yes, that's exactly it. I haven't broken down yet and signed on or anything, but I think about it a lot. I get on the computer still and then I realize that I really have nothing to do. I already checked my email. I already went on Pinterest.

I have read quite a bit of my most recent book and I did finish Makayla's Tinkerbell skirt for her party on Saturday, but I still pick up my computer. 

It's going to be a constant struggle for me...at least for a while. I know that and I'm willing to endure it and get past it. It might sound crazy that I'm talking about Facebook this much, but it's true. For some reason, I'm addicted to reading other people's crap. Yet, at the same time, I'm bound to change my course. Make myself free from the system. And in turn use my time wisely to complete projects, clean my house, read my books, spend time with my girls.

I'm doing it. And I'm holding fast.

"But examine everything carefullyhold fast to that which is goodabstain from every form of evil." -1 Thessalonians 5:21

You can do it! Another friend of mine deleted her FB as well. So motivating you both are! And if you ever decide to remake it so be it. ;) I totally feel you on this hindrance part. I am simply deleting much of my personal information and am going to refocus it back on scripture and Fibro awareness like I had intended when I remade an account in August. SO hard to do when it is easy to get sucked in to peoples lives. Kudos girlfriend.

I find that I spend a lot of time checking Facebook as well. I feel like I'm missing out on something going on if I don't check it all the time. If I didn't have my iPhone I would probably never check fb. I feel like it cuts into so much I could be doing and I feel like it's robbing me of my quality time with the kids. It's hard though because it's the way I stay in contact with my friends and family, especially now that we've moved away.
