A Year of Good Things - 11/366 - Conquering

So...two days ago I cleared out my personal Facebook account. Yep, I messaged all of my 'friends' to tell them I would only be communicating on Facebook via the Retro Age page, so to come on over if ya'll want to chat there etc. I've been on FB for 3-4 years, I think - too long, perhaps. Some 'friends' followed. Some 'friends' didn't. But I didn't care. The power was in deleting the friend list and deleting my communication with 'friends' on Facebook. I felt like I was on a pure high. I felt elated. I felt relieved. I felt totally free. I had wanted to delete my page for a long time but was always fearful of people being offended or of losing contact with people I loved and liked. How bloody silly is that? I know all of the people I love are in my life, in one way or another, and I had to remind myself that I was loved and cared for offline.

So I conquered my fears about removing the FB 'friends' and just did it. It feels strange - yep, even after two days - but it feels even more fantastic by the day!

PS. This post should actually link to a really cool clip on YouTube but it's not embedding for some reason. If you want to see it - it's here...
