Lent came barreling up to me this year! One second it’s a normal day and the next second, boom, logging off Facebook.
Facebook is this ongoing issue for me, especially recently. Last year I gave it up with such grace and ease like I was this big Facebook sacrificing angel.
This year God puts me to the test, can I make this sacrifice even though I don’t feel thoroughly invested?
It seems silly to make a big deal over this. Facebook gives me this forum to mindlessly relax while feeling mildly passively connected to everyone I ever knew. I defend this because the problem makes me feel lame.
Im not adding anything this year. I’ve just taken on a whole slew of new good habits this month – the writing, the music, the Spanish , the confession.. my goal will be to keep it all going.
I have to keep in mind I’m making this sacrifice to be free from a (seemingly benign) chain, so I can have more time for my hobbies.
