No More Facebook!
Well ,I decided this morning to deactivate my account on Facebook. I have been struggling whether or not to go through with it. I have come to the conclusion that even though it is great to connect and talk with all of your friends and family that it can be quite addicting. I found myself logging on to Facebook many times a day and spending too much idle time reading and responding. My husband came home from a priesthood meeting several weeks ago and told me that President Catlett had warned against the use of Facebook and other things of this nature. I started to pay closer attention to myself and the amount of time I was on Facebook. It was very alarming. I had sudden urges to go and check my Facebook account all of the time (this is called an addiciton NOT GOOD). I feel that I need to spend more time doing useful things like reading my scriptures, the Ensign, focusing on my calling, and most of all spending quality time with my kids. I also came to the conclusion that my blog is a great way to connect with others. I usually post something twice a month not twice a day. I know that President Catlett is a man of God and I should follow his council. I will be a better person for it. I felt that I needed to post my concerns with Facebook to any of you out there that might be experiencing the same things.
