I’m really proud of my husband and of myself. We set out to DIY our landscaping and the grass has come in very nicely. It has surprised both of us just how lush and green it is. A big change from trying to grow things in Nevada!
I made a very big decision this evening.
If you’ll remember, I left Facebook once before, but then I rejoined. I haven’t been happy about it. Tonight, I decided to delete it again. I just don’t want to be on there. And I felt instant relief!
I also decided to go ahead and delete my Twitter account. I’ve always enjoyed Twitter, but lately I find that I am getting frustrated and annoyed by just about everything on my feed. Sometimes it can be hard for me to just look away, so I took the big step and deleted it.
I feel a sense of freedom. Like I’ve just gained a part of my life back. And I know that sounds extreme, but that is how I feel.
Don’t worry, I kept Instagram. I love that! And I’m on Pinterest because I am finding great ideas there for cooking and decorating.
I know to many it may seem silly, but I just need to not have all that social media clutter in my mind. It’s like I just gave myself permission to breathe again!
*Update 12/26/17* After much debate with myself, I rejoined Twitter.
It’s been getting more and more difficult lately for me to stomach social media. I used to not mind the constant barrage of garbage that streamed out at me. In fact, I used to chime in all the time with a bunch of my own opinions. But I have changed quite a bit and now I just don’t want to join the masses. I’m still on my social media sites, but it’s not like it was once upon a time for me.
I left Facebook for quite a while, and I wonder every day why on earth I rejoined. Most of the time, I just don’t see the point. There are a few groups I enjoy being a part of, but that’s it. I convince myself to stay because there are a few family members and friends that I know I will never hear from if I leave. I know this because I did leave and it was as if I ceased to exist. It’s sad. And I often wonder why I care when obviously taking time outside of Facebook is so hard for others… Ugh. But I do care… so I stay.
