I was recently inspired by a blog post on Britton Loves about going phone/internet free for a weekend. The post helped me realize that I also need to try to step back occasionally. I’m not sure I could go without my phone since I don’t have a house phone for people to reach me at during emergencies, but I can definitely sacrifice a day without internet.
Going without the internet for a whole weekend might be a bit much for me at this time, but I’ve decided to go internet free this Thanksgiving! Family time should be family time, no interruptions! I am actually looking forward to the break. There are too many times during a holiday that I’ve taken pictures and posted them on social media while I’m still at the event. Not this Thanksgiving! It can wait.
I feel very lucky to have grown up during a time when the internet wasn’t around. We had to actually go outside, use our imaginations and spend more time with each other. Don’t get me wrong, I am also very thankful for the internet. Now that I have experienced it, I wouldn’t want it to go away. Being a blogger, I thrive on the internet. But I think we can all agree that a break can be very refreshing!
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving & hopefully you are able to spend some quality time with your family and friends.
