This past weekend, my fiance and I decided to go home to our "other" house for a few nights. Here, this is peace and quiet all hours of the day. You can hear the birds chirping and the summer bugs deep into the night. I woke up Saturday morning and walked downstairs, had a cup of Jo and read a few magazines. There is no television here, nor is there internet or great cell phone service.
Until today, I never imagined myself living without these things. I am constantly on my phone (to a fault) and I love watching television. Not to mention, what would a blogger do without internet?!
Well, let me tell you what you would do. You would enjoy life just a bit more.
You would browse Pinterest less and enjoy your significant other more.
You would go on your social media channels less and love your pets more.
You would get out of the house and enjoy company at a nearby coffee shop instead of marching around your house in pajamas all day.
You would surf internet shops less and save more mula.
You would watch less television and talk more with your s.o.
You would enjoy the sound of music instead of your email/text message beeps.
I could go on & on with this. The point is: you don't need it. You don't need the internet 24/7 and you don't need television.
This got me thinking about our future children and keeping ourselves unplugged. I am highly considering going without a television and encouraging our children to dream and create. When I was a wee- little one I used to craft anything and write books. Children these days are wrapped up in television on their momma's iPad or using controllers to play video games.
What do you think? Are you unplugged? Would you ever do it?
