This weekend I had the opportunity to unplug from all that tends to demand my attention in a day. Hence, why there were no posts.  I chose to let go of the demands of both the cell phone and the computer, and enjoyed it.  We now live in a society that makes it virtually (no pun intended) impossible to unplug.  Sure, maybe on occasion the cell phone battery dies and creates an unexpected opportunity to be without technological contact. For the most part, however, people have become increasingly tied to their cell phones and are, therefore, on alert all of the time. Do we really want to be needed that much? There is little if any separation. It is as if we are trained to watch our phones for a blinking light.  We thought wireless would make things easier when in fact, they make things constant. You hear a little ping and you immediately pick up your phone to look at the text, the email or the Facebook notification. Give yourself a break sometimes so as to maintain your personal well-being. Learn to unplug….even for just a while. You will not miss anything; you will instead find a sense of peaceful solitude.
