I’m finding that I need a break from technology at times. It’s really no surprise to me even though I realized blogging is my passion. For instance, this is the last school week for the boys and I’m looking forward to the break from routine, sometimes I need a break from the boys, cooking, and even the responsibilities of life.
I think technology is great, but there’s more to life than emailing, tweeting, updating my Facebook status, and yes even blogging. I still believe that soul to soul connections with others is what fuels our hearts, time with family & friends is what creates meaningful memories, and the pure innocence of a child and how they see the world is priceless. You won’t find any of that on the internet.
Don’t get me wrong I think Facebook has allowed us to stay connected in a different way and enabled us to stay up-to-date on the lives of friends or family that don’t cross our daily routine paths. Catching up with my high school classmates has been enjoyable, and I believe our up-in-coming 20th reunion will be more meaningful because if it. Facebook has also enabled me to stay in touch with co-workers that I worked with for 11 years, and keep that networking of the working world alive for this Entrepreneurial-Mom-at-Home.
Yes, technology is great, but there are times when I take breaks that can be from a day to a week long. I will admit even in the down days I’m thinking of future blog posts to share with you, because living on a farm has taught me a lot and I hope to share those lessons with you.
