Today, I am being the woman I needed when I was a child….a vindicator of the innocent, the strong matriarchal guardian, who embraced her femininity.
By the light of her cell phone, she rolls over in her bed, reading the newsfeed of her favorite social media site, as the clock, tic tocks on the night stand beside her bed.
If you own a cell phone, I imagine this has been a scene in your life at some point. I joined the cell phone crowd about a year ago. I tossed the land line and began carrying my life in my right hand pocket, which included, everyone else in my life as well. With all the bells and whistles that go with, someone posting on my social media sites, or someone texting me, calling me and tagging me, 24/7!!
STOP!!.. Make the world go away and get it off my shoulders. Ha!, sounds like a song to me. But it is a point I did reach after a few months of owning a cell phone. I needed silence and time to unwind. So by 9pm nightly, you, the world is silenced. I set the cell phone to silent, very low light, flip it over and take a deep breath as I lay my head on my pillow.
But, what if there is an emergency? How will we reach you? Well, come and knock on my door or send some one close by to knock on it. You were able reach me before I got the cell phone, you still can.
Some people, most people, have excuses why they can’t silence their cell, but few have a legit reason, because there probably is not one. As for me, I am not here to judge, yet more than likely, I get a better nights sleep than you and wake refreshed in the morning. 🙂 I have always found it easy to detach from things, people included, even though my will power is not strong. As weird as that is, it does work for me.
It’s 630am, time to start a new day, bright eyed and bushy tailed! Oh, now where is that cell phone? So I can see and read what you’ve been up to for the last 8 hours. 😉
Have a great day!
