I do not love well when I’m addicted to technology. I ignore the dogs, my husband, my roomie. I lose track of time and slack on my chores. I’m perpetually distracted, and when I’m not distracted, I’m seeking distraction.
It’s a cycle.
Because we all want to be lazy sometimes. The problem is when that sometimes becomes all the time. Can you stop? Will you stop?
Will I take the time to refocus?
To play with the dog, snuggle my husband, take a bath, read a book…Can I become self-disciplined to love well? To grow and nurture myself and my relationships? To do more with these minutes than stare and scroll?
S T O P .
My mind and body beg, but distraction is easier.
Log off. Shut down.
Disconnect to reconnect.
Live for more.
