It Doesn’t Matter Where We Go

  1. This is so true. Not until recently did I realize how often I am distracted by my phone when I’m around my kids. One day when my son was tugging on my shirt it hit me. What’s more important, checking Facebook or giving my son my undivided attention? I knew the answer but it wasn’t until then I started acting like I knew the answer. Thank you for the gentle reminder about enjoying the simple moments in life and being present in the here & now

    1. Same. I can tell myself it’s harmless, but it’s not. I know how I felt when I was younger and the phone played a similar role in our house. There’s a Louis C.K. clip on YouTube about him giving up the internet and having his daughter set a password so he (the dad) couldn’t get on because it was feeding so much of his inattention. Check it out if you haven’t already seen it.

  2. Thanks , this brought back a lot of sweet memories of the simple things that I miss so much with my parents and my sister when I was so much younger.

    1. You’re welcome. And thank you for reading. I was talking to a friend yesterday and the conversation came up how, as a culture, we’ve become disconnected from nature and simplicity. It’s like we’ve forgotten how to embrace one another fully. We’re constantly stimulated by something, be it our own thoughts or an outside distraction, and place what’s most important in a secondary position. We need to change that and return to the simple joys we had a children.
