Freedom from FB
After finally succumbing to the pressure to join FaceBook, and actually enjoying it for a while, I have recently come to the realization that FB really hasn't brought any substantial benefit to my life. In fact, it has done the opposite by taking much of my free time from my family, and myself. I haven't done any knitting or spinning, no photography, not as much reading, no new blog posts, etc. FB really became a drain of my time and energy, it stifled my creativity, and essentially created an addict. I made the decision last week to delete my FB account, and after a few days of withdrawal, I am finally feeling liberated! What a relief. It is time to get back to my life. The life that is here - now - and is REAL. The article that pushed me over the edge is here - http://www.minimalistathome.com/your-digital-life-is-not-your-life/. Perhaps some of you will come to the same realization as I did.
