In this day and age, spending time on your laptop or your smartphone is almost a necessity. Most people use that time to stay informed and updated on the day’s events. They use it for work, or keeping up with family and friends on social media. It’s very easy to get caught up in all of the technology. However, it’s also very important to “connect” with reality, too!
Have you ever been in a room with lots of other people, and you look up from your own phone, for a moment, and realize that most everyone else in the room is on their phone too? No one even notices that you’ve returned, from wherever it was that you went, because they’re all still in their own, alternate universe. I say most everyone because a lot of times it’s typically the younger members of the room who will immerse themselves in their smartphone universe, not so much the elders. Usually, they’re off together in a corner somewhere conversing, laughing and spending time with each other. Most of them realize that spending time together is what counts!
Just remember, it’s important to keep in mind, that one day the older members of the room, will begin to decrease in number. That group of grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles will become fewer and fewer. Spend time with your parents and always remember to treat them well. Because one day, when you look up from your phone, they won’t be there anymore.
