That was a tough week. At first I had planned on simply not playing any computer games and, limiting my browsing. However, I decided I might as well not turn my computer on for the span of the week....it was hard, but I succeeded. Many times I wanted to go on the net do some browsing, chat with friends, play some games etc. I decided I was tired of letting my self down, no more excuses and procrastination, I wasn't going to listen to that little Devil on my shoulder and, give in.
Instead of waking up and heading in front of a screen, I substituted a book (love this book), instead of playing a game, I went for a walk, and instead of chatting with my friends online, I talked to them in person and even got them out of the house a few times. The time away from my computer, gave me more me time, time to think about what matters in my life. My relationship with my family has improved and, most importantly with myself. I now have a sense of where I want to go with my life and, the person I would like to and, should be.
I could go on and on, about how PC fasting has done so much for me, and in only a week. I am now a stronger person and,I believe that to be the intention of this exercise. Proving to one self that you are capable of doing anything, you just have to start, and keep on going. I will end this blog with a quote from a great man.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
