Good Company Keeps You Going!
We have technology to solve just about every problem we have now, as long as we keep them charged we are good to go! Things as simple as calling a restaurant and making a reservation have been further streamlined to create a seamless and easy process. While these advancements have been life changing, I find myself wondering if we are taking time the “charge” ourselves. By that I mean are we taking time to set our intentions, get ourselves in a winning mindset, and find something to be grateful for daily.
They say that “thoughts become things”, if that is true, I encourage everyone to think positively as that will manifest in your everyday life! When it comes to technology we have many applications now that work to eliminate the feeling of solitude so many people feel in their daily lives. Apps like Twitter and Instagram allow people to join communities and feel like a bigger part of something. While I myself utilize these apps, and understand their uses, I fear at time that people are losing their ability to find joy in real life, with the people that surround them instead of the people they bond with through the web. I personally love chatting with people face to face, I enjoy being part of a physical community and I fear that virtual connections are causing others to forget the joy of those more personal connections. It is not a problem that can be solved over night, but it is something to keep an eye on. Remind yourself to socialize with people face to face, even if that means meeting some of your virtual friend in real life (IRL)!
I want to send a big thank you to all of my friends and family who are part of my community, and I hope you are soon able to do the same! If you can’t put yourself out there and make it a goal for 2019!
