Slow Down and Unplug June 25, 2012

I woke up this morning and immediately grabbed my phone and checked the weather. I came downstairs and turned on the laptop. I checked my phone for messages while I made my coffee. I got my coffee and sat down at the computer and checked my email. Now I sit here typing this. Do  you even remember what we did before all this technology became requirements for us to function normally in our daily lives? Sometimes I strain to remember. I think I got my coffee and talked to somebody, maybe after that I walked my dog. One thing I do remember is being able to separate work, school, and my personal life. I think we all have become too aware of ourselves and what needs to be done that we forget to just live. Everyone needs time to unplug. We are so busy “checking in” we forget to look around and see what the world is trying to show us. Beautiful paths carved into the woods, natural phenomenon like the boulder field created from an ancient glacier, and finally realizing humans are just as much a part of nature as any other creature – we just need to do it right.

    Hi, thank you for the follow! I think what you’re saying has a great deal of truth to it, but I love making connections with people! It’s very difficult to make new friends in life, but I do it quite frequently online! There is a point where it’s too much, but for me it’s been nothing but beneficial! I love the voice that comes thru in your writing, that’s not easy to create! Let the gears of inspiration never need to stop! Nice to meet you!

    • Thank you for your comments. Honestly, I just try to let what I am thinking flow – no holds barred. I think we all could use the time to let our real selves show and the time to enjoy who we are and other people. I am very glad to meet you as well!
