When you read this, I’ll either be in a location that has little cell service and no internet, or will have returned from said location. Either way, as I prepare to take a family vacation, the one thing I’m most excited about is that we will be unplugged.
My media addiction has been bothering me recently. Then, not two minutes ago, I came across this video (on Facebook, of course) and became more anxious than ever to head for the hills.
Please take a moment to watch this video. Technology is a blessing. I love that Facebook allows me to stay in touch with family and friends all over the country. Text makes life so much simpler…and so much more difficult. Sometimes I wish there were an “off” switch or an “out of the office” reply for the messages that flood my phone.
I need to unplug because I need to be happy with silence once again, to enjoy a book, to play a game with my family, to just be.
