I’m contemplating a fast from television. Ironic, since at the moment I’m writing this while a DVD of a television show is on and I was thinking about two other shows that I wouldn’t mine owning the DVDs to. But I’ve been dancing around this thought for a while now, and then on Sunday, the pastor at the church I attended with my friend made a comment about television that got me thinking. And prior to that, I’ve been frustrated by how much time I spend in front of the tube. I get more enjoyment from reading and watching movies than television anyway. Plus, I get tired of seeing all of the home decorating shows that I’m draw to but make me wish I had a nicer house (and my house is great!).
So I’m going to continue to mull this over through the end of the month. I think the best time to start something is at the beginning of the month, so I will decide by September 1. In the meantime, I’m going to work on being satisfied with what I have and enjoying the television as a piece of entertainment.
