I’m on the 5th day of my 40 day fast of Twitter and Facebook. Facebook was becoming something I used less and less so I’m not missing it too much. Twitter, however, I miss a lot. Or at least I do sometimes.
Sometimes, I enjoy the increased time and freedom away from it. I don’t feel like I have to keep up so I don’t miss something. I don’t feel pressure to start a show at its showtime so I can tweet and read relevant responses. My family doesn’t miss me being glued to my phone . I don’t either.
But there are things I miss. I miss sharing great links. I miss sharing funny things my kids say. I miss venting. I miss reading about current events. I miss tweeting about current events. Most of all I miss finding out about everyone’s day. I don’t care what people say, you can find find friends on Twitter and you can keep up with friendships there. And I miss it.
Back on the flip side, the point of it is working. I’ve spent more time studying God’s word and in study materials this week than I have in a long time. It’s been good. I’ll be thinking through how to balance it all in 35 days. But I’m not going to pretend I don’t miss it. Cause I do.
