From celebs, to tv personalities, average joe’s, and everyone in between. Twitter seems to be growing steam and shows no sign of slowing down.
I have been twittering (not sure if that can be a verb…) for almost a year now. I felt like I was behind when I started, but now it seems that everyone is playing the catch-up game and jumping on.
Twitter is like crack (I have never done crack…but for all relative purposes, you know what I mean). The more time you spend on twitter, the more you want to tweet more, and more, and more. I think I have sent about 4 messages while I am writing this post.
For lent, I gave up posting tweets on Twitter. I had become somewhat (very) obsessed with my online persona. That is the allure of the online world; you can be anyone you want to be. I became consumed more with wanting people to know me than knowing myself in the real world.
The Twitter/ Facebook fast began. The first week or so was pretty difficult. Every time anything happened, I wanted to share it with the world. But, as time went on, things got better. God showed me so much about myself during my fast. I will share more about it in the future.
I want to be myself online and offline.
This is something I have struggled with on the blog as well. It is easy to say something profound, insightful, or provactive; it is a different story to live it.
That is where the rubber meets the road.
I want my what I say and what I do to match. I want to share my life with other, but I want to share MY LIFE, not the life I wish I had.
It is a daily choice I must make to not fake it. Just like faking a prayer or saying some scripted “christanease” saying just because it was ‘fitting’. I want God to be pleased with my life. I want Him to shine through…and we both cannot be the star at the same time.
That’s it for now. More to come soon…
