Unplugged

This has been weighing on me for some time. I am spending way too much time not being fully present with the beautiful world that is unfolding right in front of me. By being plugged in, I'm missing out on what really matters. Hence why I haven't been around much the last few weeks (I know some of you have asked  )Most of us are guilty. Look around next time you're waiting in line at a coffee shop or at your child's sporting event. The majority of those around have their head buried in their phone. Not only are we missing out on a valuable opportunity to get to know the people around us, we're missing out on being present with our own thoughts and our own families. We're missing out on all the stuff that's most important.

I challenge you to unplug a little, starting today. Pick your own length of time. Perhaps this will merely be a starting point and gradually we can shave more and more time off being on our phones and being with our loved ones. Spread the word! Urge others to unplug and let's see the change in ourselves and our families.


More on these thoughts coming soon...
