I think we can all relate to the idea that being “present” with family and loved ones is a new challenge in 2020.
We live in a world of everything at our fingertips….literally.
If we want ANY information, really just about ANYTHING we want to find is on our phone.
We all know the internet and social media are such amazing technology advances, but did we think about the downfall of these incredible tools?
The downfall, is getting so “caught up” on your device that has endless information…that we forget to PRIORITIZE relationships that really matter, that really count. Our family relationships.
I personally, catch myself getting zoned into my phone and I hate that. I want my kids to remember me as a mom that was “present.” I want my kids to remember me as a mom that created memories and actually enjoyed playing with my kids. NOT the mom that was “too busy” for my kids.
My goal is to learn to have limits and boundaries with my technology. Of course we are blessed to have the technology we have today, and it can benefit us greatly…but I just want to make sure I am utilizing my time productively and focusing my PRIORITY on my sweet family.
I love my family, I waited a long time to be a wife and mother, and I don’t want the years to fly by and to look back with regretting thoughts like:
“was I on my phone too much?” “Did I only cook and clean when my kids were home?” “Did I ever get involved and actually play make-believe with my kids?”
I don’t want to be haunted with the concern of how much I was distracted by technology so this months priority is to be “present” with family.
As always, I will keep you updated on how this monthly goal journey goes.
