I am sitting here this morning and thinking ahead to this next week. I am getting very excited about this fast. I realize how much I am going to be sacraficing, and yet, I feel like I am the one getting the good side of the deal. Does that make sense?
Here is what I am fasting (non food related) as well during this time of purity.
1. Computer social networks. (ie: facebook)
2. Computer time (I will take 1 hour between 3 and 4 a day. If I can't get to the computer that day ~ oh well.)
3. Excess phone usuage. (Only taking calls but will limit to 2 minutes unless it is business related, then it is a 5 min limit tops.)
Those really are the only things I can personally think of that I do in excess and can cause conflicts in my home. Most of it ~ is my addiction to the computer. Too often for too long that is where I found friendships, and because of the conviences, I have probably slacked in my real life friendships.
Fasting is not about "poor me". It is about "humble me".
So, with that, I am going. I am excited to see what is going to happen during the next 22 days of my life. Part of me is already considering adopting this way of eating for more then the 21 days, but of course we shall see what happens.
