You heard it here…I am breaking up with my phone.
It’s not you, it’s me.
Technology is consuming us. Who is reading this right now while you are around a group of people and instead of having a conversation with them, you are reading my words?
I’m not saying we shouldn’t take the time to read and play on social media, but we should be doing these things when we are not compromising the precious time we have with other souls. Life is short. You could be missing out on building relationships, learning from others.
It’s also decreasing our productivity because we are constantly searching for something to read and do while our own personal to-do lists are growing.
I say all of this from my own personal experience—my own war with my phone!
Social media and it’s artful seduction wraps you in and doesn’t let you go!
Part of my “New Year’s Resolutions” were to decrease the amount of time I am aimlessly goofing off on my phone. I have actually taken the time to schedule “phone time” so that I can check my emails, social media, play games and read groovy articles about crystals and the planets.
By doing so I hope to:
Work on my own personal relationships.
Get more in touch with my self......

“Communication Breakdown, It’s always the same,
I’m having a nervous breakdown, Drive me insane!” ~ Zeppelin
Robert Plant has it spot on!
Communication—it’s can be the most simple task, yet the most complex. Communication is a basic survival necessity. We need it to be able to live with other people, to live with ourselves.
How can we even communicate with our significant others if we can’t communicate our desires to ourselves?
How do we expect our relationships to get any where if you can’t have a simple conversation about what’s for dinner with our loves?
We are living in a society where communication has been dwindled down to text, email, Facebook, social media. People don’t talk anymore! There is a loss of energy and vibrations that talking aloud brings to the table. What happened to talking around a campfire? Talking around the dinner table? People don’t do that anymore (as I type this I am on one side of the table while my love is on the other playing a video game).
