Today I woke up and it was 83 minutes before I realized I hadn’t even thought about Facebook since I woke up.
This is huge progress.
God, I feel like a huge loser.
Ive realized that working from home is lonely and FB is my connection to the outside world. I miss communicating with friends.
We have cousins staying with us for the coming week so I suspect they’ll fill that gap for the next few days since I don’t plan to get back on yet.
I forced Elie to let me read just the comments on the post I wrote letting my friends know I was going on a detox. I also read the comments on a post he wrote saying I was getting twitchy in my withdrawal. I read the comments over his shoulder on his phone through his account. After reading, I picked myself up off the couch and declared I’d had my fill. It’s true.
My thoughts have, for the most part, stopped coming through as status updates. But I still have stuff I see that I wanna share. My employee bought me some essential oils for focus, funny and thoughtful- I saw a big rig truck with shiny badass spikes on the wheels. I shipped out some muchness cards in a pretty rainbow assortment of bags. I didn’t even bother to take a pic knowing I couldn’t share it. That’s kinda disappointing because I know sharing those moments helps me remember and appreciate them.
Only problem with that is I use ig for earseeds and if I keep having to log in and out to switch between accounts, it’s annoying and erases my hashtag memory.
So, it’s Friday.
Gonna stay off FB this weekend. Gonna think about if this blog is a better medium in general for sharing my thoughts. I miss blogging, but… Eh. Not sure…
Some other things I’ve done since getting off FB:
- Cleaned my whole house
- Sent an email that could lead to reviving an old idea that I totally believe has legs
- Went to the beach
- Refolded all my linen
- Watched a bunch of episodes of The Man In The High Tower on Amazon prime
- Colored. Oh- I should work on my coloring book. (I’m creating one. Being off FB will help me get to the next level with that!)
Other stuff too… Wondering what today will bring!
