I just read this post: http://crimsontowool.blogspot.com/2012/07/almost-amish-what-do-you-think.html
That sounds SO GREAT! It sounds so simple (ha). In reality, it's not. It's difficult to cut out the things that we are so tied to on a daily basis.
I'm not sure we have to cut it all out. I'm not sure how much is too much. Or... how little is just enough. I'm talking about technology here. I know that I'm not on my computer anywhere near as much as I was a few years ago. But. My iPhone...? Yeah, always on that. A.L.W.A.Y.S. It's such a help to me in so many ways. >Siri writes out my shopping lists!< It helps me SO MUCH. But I'm finding it's getting more difficult for me to just "be".
I'm not sure when that started. Maybe when I first got a computer.
You know what? -- my friends aren't IRL. None of them. Isn't that strange? Do you think I have a problem? I have NO ONE in my life who lives "here" to call, talk to, laugh with, go to lunch with... I don't want you to feel sorry for me. I'm just sayin'. But all the same, I don't think that's right. Or maybe I mean good. I don't think that's good. But that is the life I've created for myself. And even though I never really think about it, I don't think it's supposed to be like this.
I'm just sharing here and being vulnerable, I guess. I'm not even sure why or how this happened. I know it was me. And I'm not sure how to stop it or change it. Is anyone else like this? Hm. Anyway, just my rambling thoughts for today. :)
