Making a more focused and greater effort

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I'm going to try something that's radical but has worked for me in the past. I am getting rid of my internet hookup. And I may get rid of my computer completely. I need to have more of a life than I do. It would be great if I could use the computer appropriately, but I behave very addictively with it. So I am going to use the computer at my local library branch because it limits the user to one hour at a time. This will help me to be focused when I go there to use it and not just be on there all day 'surfing'. I did some editing of my sparkpage and my list of friends so that I am mostly keeping only the friends who are currently active. I doubt people would even remember who I am anyway since I have been gone so long. But there are definite people whose journey I want to be part of even if it's only in the sense of observing and being inspired. Good luck to you all in 2013 with your life and health goals. I will do my best to check in with sparkpeople daily or at least weekly.

    I'm in the process of copying my home address book into my webmail address book. And I have (an old fashioned) paper address book. I'm not worried about losing touch or missing out on things since I can go to the library everyday. It also has the imortant side benefit of getting me out of the house. Otherwise I'm kind of a recluse which is not healthy for me. Also I do have a phone and I do plan to make and receive calls. I hope people WILL call me if something important happens. Thank you for being so concerned about me. And I do have printed materials, but I also plan to use Sparkpeople as I need it (on the library computer). I will probably be back on line at home when I get a new computer (this one breaks down too much). I'd like to get a lap top, so it will take me a while to afford it. See you soon - probably Wednesday this week.

    Wow, that is radical, but you need to do what is best for you. I hope you print out references and such that you may need later on,,, get home addys for people that may be sick or die,etc..
I have only had a pc for about 5 years, so I used the library for about two years,,

best of luck in your new lifestyle,, and yes, we WILL miss you, you Sparker you!! emoticon Good luck!
