There is something about unplugging for 4 days that brings things back into focus.
I spent the last 4 days with no technology. Just spending time with family. Relaxing. Playing games. Eating good food. The trifecta baby. The place where you thrive. The place where real life takes place.
Today after a conversation with a friend I am thinking about blogs and Facebook. The technology that I hate. That I love. That I hate that I love.
Thinking about the lack of accountability for time spent on these two things.
Do you and I have the freedom to as much access to technology as our little hearts desire?
Is it OK that there is no filter on time spent browsing the web?
When we shoo our kids away because we're "busy", does that bring honor into our home?
I'm thinking through accountability in this area.
When I came to my computer there were 97 emails waiting me. It took about 5 minutes to delete most of them and respond to the most pressing. What I would normally spend hours a week on took 5 minutes when dealt with in condensed form.
The rest of my time has been spent in life giving activities.
So the thing I am pondering. Having Shane have my password to Facebook and only checking it once a week when he logs me in. Boo. Yay. No interaction with the world. Important interaction with those that matter most. Seeing what you are doing. Actually doing something in my realm.
What do you think? If Facebook and Internet robbing you of real life?
