A nice week

It’s been almost three weeks since the end of Digital Detox Week and I’ve yet to write about my experiences during my break from social media and TV. The week was incredibly refreshing and it gave me a glimpse of a life free from the distractions of my consumer habits. On the first day, I sat down and began a list of “best practices” that I would like to put into action in order to bring my life in line with what I believe God wants my life to look like. As the week proceeded, I revisited the list, making changes based on God’s leading. After a couple more weeks of changes, I’m ready to begin implementing the list this week. I’m really not sure if I will be able to implement everything, but I am determined to try (with Yoda’s voice in my head: “do or do not, there is no try”). Part of me is looking forward to the challenge, while part of me recognizes the foolishness of it. With much prayer, I venture forward.

  • Good for you!
    Are you beginning all the practices at once, or are there some high-priority ones you can start with?

    • Thanks! There are some high-priority ones that I'm starting with. Basically, unless I can implement a couple, there's no way I can implement some others. Therefore, those couple are the ones I'm starting with. I'll slowly phase in the others. Usually when I try to make a change for the better I end up failing because I bit off too much at once…
