I'm breaking up with facebook

I'm torching the bridge and watching it burn.

I'm completely done with facebook.

I'm searching for peace and more intentional living, and being a part of such chaos is not parallel to that lifestyle.

I actually wrote a blog post explaining why in great detail, but I liked it so much I turned it into an article and submitted it to one of my favorite websites.  I probably won't get published, but I feel like I can cross something off my bucket list.

I'm technically not allowed to publish it anywhere while it's being reviewed, but I thought a small paragraph wouldn't hurt...

"Moments that were private within our home were always followed by a thought about sharing on facebook.  My mind started to talk in facebook updates.  I was blowing up the feed with photos of my kids and all my artsy instagram photos.

And the part that I didn’t want to admit to… the judging."

My photography business page on facebook has been what's holding me back, but right now... it's the size I'd like it to be, and we will continue to grow by word of mouth.  

So, I'm letting that go too.

Here's to more intentional living! 

*Once I get the official rejection or slim chance of an approval, I'll share the article :)
