No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected~ Julius Caesar
I was thrown off my blog posting schedule for 24 hours… Yesterday, my dog Sunshine ran through the living room and yanked the power cord out of my laptop. It somehow broke and my laptop quickly ran out of power…
I found a replacement on Amazon and had it overnighted to me, and it just arrived.
I missed posting my inspirational quote last night and missed writing a Connect With Your True Self post today… I’ll be back on track tomorrow though.
It was strange to not have my laptop standing by, waiting to spring into action. I felt disconnected.
Between my blog and my soon to be revealed online business efforts, I feel like I’m staring at a screen every moment I’m awake.
I still had my Kindle, but it’s difficult to actually write anything on it, so I felt unplugged…
At first I felt guilty… I needed to be working! I woke up this morning and decided to just enjoy the day with no pressure to be online and working… I took a nap… I cooked breakfast… I didn’t do much productive.
I now realize it’s healthy to have time away from my screen, even if it’s forced. Too much hunching over and tapping can’t be good for me.
I’m thinking about taking a computer free day for myself on a regular basis. Sometimes I forget there’s a real world all around me, waiting to be explored. Maybe I’ll go watch some birds, and I don’t mean the angry kind that launch themselves at green pigs…
