In other words, I am going on a FaceBook hiatus. I don’t know about you, but the amount of hours that FaceBook sucks out of my day is just overwhelming when I take a step back and look at it. I don’t even go on at work anymore yet I know that I am still spending at least 4 -4 ½ hours per day planting crops in Cityville, decorating one of my many homes in Yoville or finding hidden ancient artifacts in my Garden of Time!
And, if I am not in a Facebook stupor, I am under the cloud of the iPhone, and yes I said cloud (that iCloud is raining on me already, but that is a story for another time)…for as remarkable as that little device is, it’s just another lecherous leech, sucking away at your day.
What was I doing before I began growing four hour eggplants and working at a widget factory (for slum wages I might add) I cannot remember, but this is what I do know for sure:
This world we live in is full of movement, seen and unseen. A person sitting at computer screen could be there repeating mindless acts or writing the next great International novel, the movement is seen and unseen. What’s actually taking place on the inside can only be known by the watcher.
Not your husband or wife, or child or friend who is standing over your shoulder, but the watcher that awakens in you, takes notice of your actions reporting back to you.
We get so caught up in this thing called life and the milliards of obsessions, distractions, and actions that come along with it. There are so many things that fall into this category. There are enough gadgets and websites, or video games, and television shows, jobs or sex toys (sorry been there, had to add that) to distract the hell out of you.
Know that you are the actor playing the part, the writer creating the script, the director of the play and when you are connected TRULY connected the audience who is consciously taking it all in and enjoying the show.
Today I am thankful for the watcher in me, tapping me on my shoulder, reminding me to sit up, pay attention, re-write, rework, re-direct and enjoy.
