Giving Up

Today is Shrove Tuesday, and Lent is almost here again. Last year I didn't give anything up, but chose to take up blogging every day. This year I've decided to give up (drum roll please)... Facebook! 

This should really have been what I gave up last year, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. This year, I really couldn't care less as I don't even go online every single day like I used to, and only spend about 5-10 minutes on Facebook on average (well, give or take a few...) 

Had I done this last year, I think I may have reaped the benefits of having more time. This year I don't think it'll make a huge difference, but maybe I'll manage to do something productive with my the extra few minutes I gain each day. I'm beginning to get my priorities right in life and realise what really matters. I don't think I'll give up Facebook permanently like one of my (very sensible) friends, because I do keep in touch with a few people through social networking. But my 40 days in the wilderness may cause Facebook to dwindle into even more of an insignificance in my life.
