unplug

It really hit me this morning just how plugged in I have become to technology. I took my dog outside, got halfway down the stairs and turned around to get my phone that I had left inside. Now it might take 5-8 minutes for my dog to do his business. In retrospect I’m pretty sure the world would have continued on if I hadn’t turned back for my phone. I work from home, and besides my fur babies I’m alone the majority of the day. I do a lot of writing of course but I’ve gotten into the habit of turning the TV on when I sit at my laptop, when I clean, even when I cook. I’ve convinced myself it’s for the noise, a distraction if you will. I started thinking about silence and why people, to include myself are so afraid of the silence. I can’t speak for everyone but for me it’s the things you hear in the silence, your own thoughts, a harsh critic. I use to meditate every day and then I got “busy”. So this is my wakeup call…. I need to unplug and listen to the silence, connect with my thoughts and quiet them so I can hear my soul!

    It's very hard to unplug with all the technology we use today. Trying to lessen the use even a little is a great way to start! Peace be with you!

    naturally like your web-site however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I will surely come again again.
