Well I did it. It certainly was a long time coming. Not that I have any complaints. Truly it's rather unbelievable for me anyway, to be back in touch with friends from high school days. People I knew way before Marriage & Family Living. Would you believe that was the name of one of the high school courses I took. Really. Being in touch with friends from those times has really been an awesome ride in a time capsule of sorts. To think we were only on the brink of becoming adults, & now so many of us not only have gone through the passage of raising children of our own, but are grandparents too. Recently these past few years when we've clicked on & had our brief online chats with one another, in all honesty nothing has changed. They are all still the most thoughtful & caring people of who we've had the honor & privilege of walking down the halls together back in the 60's. Our chatting then around our lockers in way back time was wonderful, as it has become now!
I decided to temporarily leave Facebook, only because I was having way too much fun. Couldn't moderate myself, so it was time for me to reel it in. The goal is to exercise better control & discipline in order to use the creative time I've been blessed with by setting up an important & realistic work schedule. My novella though progress has been made, what remains is a long way to go! When there's a challenging job out there for me to do, & if someone is relying on me to do it for them, or punch a clock, I do it. No hesitation. But if it's not for another person's need [as I'm a born & bred caretaker of sorts], it becomes way too easy to find other things to occupy my time. A habit built over a lifetime, of which I am finally in the process of putting changes into place.
So with having said my goodbyes to my Facebook friends this past Sunday, & with my making this office space room pleasant once again I've replanted my feet firmly on my path of purpose. And when I do choose to return to fb it will only be if & when this discipline is well in place.
