I Deleted Facebook

I haven’t blogged recently but I’m still here. As my blog is titled “Fickle Heart” it honestly couldn’t be more true to describe me. I STILL go back and forth on if I even WANT to blog. But I haven’t deleted my blog yet 😉 I did however delete facebook and my twitter account. That isn’t anything new and believe it not I will stick to it. No fickleness there that is for sure. Anyway, more to the point. I wanted to share why I deleted them.

Twitter is really less of distraction than facebook so that decision was not hard at all, I deleted it for the same reason I deleted facebook. Technically I ‘temporarily’ deleted facebook because I may get it back one day. I’ll be honest, I do not have the self control to only be on it limited amounts of time. Having an android phone and a laptop with wi-fi at home makes it so readily accessible. I find myself in the kitchen, laptop on the counter (most likely because I’m cooking a recipe from online), clicking the facebook link while waiting for my pasta to cook and wasting 2 minutes scrolling through the news feed, all while my 2 precious girls are running around the kitchen either pushing their strollers or yelling “mom watch!” To sum it up and not go on with all the dumb details, I don’t want to look back and regret wasted time on social networks reading about other peoples memories they made when I could be making me own. Motherhood is the most important job I have and quite frankly facebook isn’t making me a better mom.

Its been refreshing and fun. I’ve had a good day playing little critters and puzzles with my girls. I believe I have made the right decision and feel confident I won’t regret it!
