Wednesday Words. (Barely…posting at 11:58pm, LOL.)
It’s ridiculously easy nowadays to stay connected to anyone, anything, anytime, anywhere with the advancements in technology, and there are a lot of perks to that. While the benefits of things like smartphones are incredible, I feel that they’ve actually caused a disconnect by creating habits of using devices as the only or primary way of communicating. At the risk of sounding way older than I actually am, I kind of miss the pre-smartphone days. Life was simpler in many ways – fewer distractions and not being blasted by all angles by media, to name a couple.
Have relationships with people, not your smartphone or tablet. See the world with your eyes, not through an Instagram or SnapChat filter. Show support for a friend by having an actual conversation with them, not hitting the like or dislike button.
And find those things that make you forget to check your phone 🙂
