Peace out!

So I’ve decided to act on some come conviction I’ve been feeling lately revolving the amount of time I am spending online. It may be distracting me and keeping me from learning some deep lessons…or at least helps me avoid them REALLY well. I had been feeling like I needed to scale back on Facebook time but kept excusing my self because I just plain didn’t wanna. This remarkable video clip came to me and pressed in…

After that, it made me start to evaluate if I was “using” my online activity as an escape as much as I use food.

Yesterday, I could run no further from the truth after reading the BRILLIANT post by Glennon over at Momestary. Please please please read:

I made the decision last night that I am being called to lay down the “check-in” obsession and BE STILL.

I removed my Facebook app and Instagram apps from my phone but will still continue to blog and post my blog on the Realology page. Other than that, I’m on a freeze.

It’s hard to admit feeling out if control in this area! What about you? Is this something you struggle with?

    I logged off for a couple weeks in December and it didnt hurt. I’m gullty of FOMS but I don’t have the FB app on my phone because I don’t like the “sync” capability, it changes all the stuff on my phone that I want the way I want it. I just “check” it alot. At work I have alot of extra time and I surf (FB is blocked) but that does the same thing, the constantly checking different sites and so on. Reading Redeeming Love was a good thing for me because it was a paperback!!! No log in required, just open it and read.
