Sing that blog title to the tune of “Tuesday’s Gone.” Because half of 2018 is gone with the wind. What have you accomplished so far this year? And more importantly, what do you want to accomplish before 2018 is completely over?
Breadmaker. Garlic press. Carabiner. Padlocks.
These are things frequently on those “100 items you can throw away today” lists you find on Pinterest. Yet I use all those items named above. Regularly. I promise. I really do.
And I bet there are items on those lists that you use. Like VHS tapes. I tossed mine six or seven years ago, but my parents still watch theirs frequently. And records. I have a friend who collects them and listens to them at least weekly if not daily.
Mahatma Gandi has given us so many great quotations. I found this one particularly thought-provoking earlier this year.
Let’s face it: Folks try this every single day. Family members. Neighbors. Strangers. Sometimes even “friends.”
Every time I’m on my personal social media profiles–and particularly on Facebook–someone does this. And I allow it to happen. I read comments that add no value to my life. I allow Facebook’s algorithms to mold my view of the world and politics. I allow family members to make draining comments on my own status updates and photos because I don’t want to start a row.
Today it stops. I don’t traditionally observe Lent, but given it starts today, what better time to give up something that adds very little value to my life but adds anxiety and stress and results in wasted time?
So join me on Instagram over the next 40 days as I provide daily challenges to help you walk away from Facebook drama–from the drama that starts in groups to the occasional arguments that start on your own profile or wall.

My New Year’s Eve went like this.
My January went . . . . well, let’s just say that February 1st 2nd is a good day to push the reset button.
