The Journey is…Facebook.

You know you need to take a break from Facebook when….

-You think of your life in the form of status updates.

-You are introduced to a “friend of a friend” in REAL LIFE….and you already recognize them AND know their complete name(including their maiden name).

-Your “just a few minutes on FB” before you go for a run, turns into an hour…as you sit in front of your computer with your running shoes on.  No time for running today.

You repeatedly think that multiple people are referring to you in their status updates.

-You “justify”…make excuses…to tell yourself the precious time wasted is OK.

-You feel that you “have to” post a status once a day…as if it is your job or responsiblity.

-Your 5 year old says, “Momma…please don’t put that on FB.”


She asks you to make her a snack & you find yourself saying, “Sure…in just a minute.”  Many times in one week.

-You think that somehow the world will stop, people will be disappointed, or that they need you to be there. It’s not going to….they won’t hardly even notice….and the only one they need is JESUS!

-2012 is going to be your “FINISH YEAR”….it’s December 31st.  You have no plan.  You haven’t even picked out a scripture for the 1st week.  So you consider asking your FB friends what THEIR favorite scripture is so that you can just pick one of those.

-AND…now that you’ve completed this blog post…you imagine what their comments might have been as you resist the urge to “SHARE” it on your wall!

….I think it’s safe to say…my first step to a successful FINISH YEAR is taking a FB break…

The Journey is…FINISH YEAR!

The link below will take you to a blog by Jon Acuff which inspired me to want to FINISH the things I have started (sometimes multiple times) during my life:
Today is the day we all share the goals we’re committing to for FinishYear!    Why are we doing FinishYear?  Because completed dreams change the world.    What are we going to do?
Here is my list of things I want to finish as posted on FB:
  • Marilon Seay likes this.
    • Matt’n’Julia Freeman Davis

      ‎1)  Study 52 scriptures this year.  By writing one scripture on a card each week….keeping God’s Word in front of me daily.  Pondering it & making sure it gets in my Spirit man.
    • 2) Be a better steward of what the Lord has blessed me with……by taking the Dave Ramsey books down off my shelf & committing to understand the wisdom contained inside.
    • 3)  Make the time to write one children’s book, and study the steps to have it published.
    • 4)  Valuing others, continuing what I started this last month, by keeping up with my cell phone.
    • 5)  Conquer my battle with food…or love myself more than food.
    • 6)  No excuses.  Train for a half marathon correctly by sticking to the Hal Higdon plan.  I will enjoy the feeling of satisfaction at the finish line this time, as I did after my very first 10k(when I did my very best).
    • 7)  Quit being so hard on myself…continue learning to love ME as much as Jesus does.
    • 8)  Pray for my husband & children daily.
    • 9)  Grasp the concept of Aperture(a photography term that eludes me). #FinishYear

    • Matt’n’Julia Freeman DavisThat is a very worthy goal Mrs. Marilon!  I know you will accomplish it!  This will be a very good year! For me…these are all things I have started at one point in my life, but never finished.
