The thought of spending quality time with loved ones intriqued me, and made me want to have that more more than just a weekend. After debating on the best way to achieve this, I decided to celebrate my independence in a different way. For one full week I will become "screen free" in an effort to promote more family time. I am officially proclaiming my independence from the intranet!!
My first reaction to this thought was gut wrenching. With a goal to reach, how will I ever accomplish my revivions if I take a week off? I allowed my conscience to weigh back and forth the pros and cons before coming to the realization that if I step back for a few days, my mind will be able to return with clearer thinking and my eyes will be more astute to tracking changings that are needed. So I tell myself that I will be doing my book a favor by taking a few days off.
On Monday July 4th, the official start of the holiday, I will begin my journey of becoming "unplugged." My computer will be shut down and I will break out the sunscreen as I embark on a few days filled with family fun. I look forward to exclusive bonding time and lots of laughs this coming week. When I conclude my independence next week, I will happily turn my computer back on so that I can blog all about the experience. Will I be able to spend seven days away from my screen? Tune in next week to find out!!
