As a family we always share with each other what we will be giving up. Normally the kids pick something they know they can stick to like cookies or chips. This year after much thought I am giving up Facebook. It will be so good for me, and so far it has been.
I sit here at my stepsons dentist appointment staring out the window at the beautiful snow falling. Pondering upon life and what the day will bring. With Facebook in my hand at all times aka: my cell phone. I am never dazing out the window. I am checking in with random aquantences I never talk to in my real life because i am bored. Without this option, so far, I have found myself happier! I think about life, memories and things I need to do today.
No I am also not giving up laundry! LOL! My family got nervous.
I am making a promise to be better and more efficient at it.
Wether you are Catholic or not, sometimes taking a break on things that seem difficult to give up can give you the most gratification and joy!
