I made it through Shabbat without a Facebook post or a tweet. Wow! I vaguely remember that there was a time before these things were invented. Oh yeah, just a few years ago. But Tweeting and Facebook have so changed our realities. But this Shabbat I participated in Shabbat Unplugged–and didn’t tweet and or Facebook. I didn’t write a blog and post it! Refraining from these things really takes the pressure off. But you don’t realize it until you stop.
I hope I can keep it going for more than once a year. But make it a Shabbat habit. Shabbat is a habit anyway. A Divine and eternal habit.
If you didn’t try this time away you always have next Shabbat. Try it. You will be relieved!
