I started a new job about a month ago and I’m really enjoying the change of pace, the learning/growth opportunities and having moved out of the food manufacturing sector and into electrical component manufacturing sector. I’m on 1st shift, which is great, but would be better if my wife wasn’t working 2nd, as I don’t see her all week. 

Today I erased a handful of social media apps off my phone, including Facebook. I truly feel giddy with liberation or, perhaps, it’s low level anxiety at losing that outlet/connection. I’m not entirely sure. 

I quit those apps to be more present when spending time with my son and to hopefully spur more creativity. The only social apps I kept are writing/creativity related. I’m keeping this short, so raise your glasses for a toast to change and to creativity! 

If anyone has done the same or similar…don’t hesitate to comment on how it went!

  1. I limited my “friends list” on Facebook to under 50 about a year ago. Lately I’ve felt like I’m just wasting my time as I scroll, scroll, scroll through so much crap that is posted. I’ve been thinking seriously about deleting the app off my phone as well. I didn’t check in for about a week and actually felt a sense of relief. Kudos to you for taking the step and thank you for the reminder that it’s a direction I am choosing to go in. I want to be actively present in the lives of my family and friends.
