I’m celebrating the one-year anniversary of my Facebook departure in a couple weeks and I gotta say, it’s been a great year! Don’t get me wrong, I think Facebook is awesome and will return someday but within the past year I’ve been able to accomplish so much. I’ve been able to truly focus on the goals I had set for myself and I’ve accomplished a lot. By not being constantly updated on who’s doing this and who’s doing that I became like a racehorse in the sense that I was just focused on my own race and no one else’s. People underestimate just how distracting it can be to be constantly updated of what’s going on in other people’s lives but now that I’m on the other side I know first-hand.
