Well my month of fasting from news and chess is almost over. I have been using the extra time taking care of projects with a couple of new business endeavers I have started.
In the last couple of days I have also cut back on my gadget blog reading and have been trying to keep that under 30 minutes a day.
Things have gone so well that I am going to extent things a month and also give up gadget blog reading. This will be a real sacrifice for me as on April the 3rd the iPad be go on sale and as I plan on getting one I would find news on the product of great interest.
All my life I have struggled with temperance. I don’t seem to have a problem giving anything up but doing things in moderation has always been difficult.
In this next month my plan is to read 10 chapters a day and get all the way through the New Covenant scriptures, spend more time memerizing scriptures, write articles more often on my blog, and spend more time in prayer.
I am committed to keep on cutting things out of my life and making more time for those things that are important.
