Facebook Free Dropout

I have to admit that I failed at Facebook Free February.  Sort of. For the first few days, I really did not miss it at all. Then for the next few days it began to eat at me. After a week I gave in. I had failed.

Where does the “sort of” come in? Well, I reactivated my account, but I don’t really want to be there. The first thing I did was unsubscribe from anyone that I don’t have regular contact with. I intentionally made my facebook less appealing in that aspect. Then I committed to keep anything that I post, be it in status or in comments, in line with Ephesians 4:29:

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

I have popped in to check my email or to send one . I chatted with a close friend. I really don’t have the desire to read through all of the statuses, but I do appreciate the email database and the central location for the resources that I use for school.

So I didn’t make the entire month, but I did get a new perspective. I was reminded that it is a tool, not a toy. I started blogging again. I opened my eyes wider to the things happening right under my own roof.  It was a good thing.
