DETACH FROM YOUR PHONE

Yesterday morning I left my house without my phone.  Luckily, I use my phone for everything —  directions, taking notes, calculator, calendar, guitar tuner, music, audio books, voice memo, meditation, camera, etc.  So I noticed it soon after I drove off.  Otherwise I would have been without it all-day-long — from early morning until the late evening.

Today, it took me at least 2 hours to notice that my phone was missing.  Luckily I needed traffic information before driving off from work. 

I had NO idea where and when I last used it.

The cleaning lady found it!  

One of my friends tried to help me find it by calling it, but — I hardly have my ringer on.  So calling my phone is pretty useless.

AT&T seems to be forcing me to buy a new phone because it hasn’t been working very well.  And because of this, I was not too worried about not finding it.  Though I would still be lost without anyone’s phone number and email address, and much much more.

I am glad I am not tied to my phone.  I often leave it in the car or at home.

When I’m out with friends, unless I have another appointment after, there is no way I would even think about using my phone.

I have a friend who bans his family from bringing their phone inside a restaurant.

Also I think CALL your friends and family, instead of texting.  Hear their voice.  Take in their love.  GIVE love.  Via voice conversation.

Try to detach from your phone.  Try harder.  There’s so much beauty right in from of you.

Happy February!

Hello Tey
Hi Tey sometimes it's good to be away from the phone and like you I'm not as dependent on it but still need it and I lost mine, so until I can get another one I'm out! Other then computer, I try buying used phones I've never had a brand new iPhone but want the 7 but not now, and when I'm with friends unless we taking hiking or concert pictures I don't text or call unless an emergency, I wish I could as I have said many times talk to you or something just to hear you! Lol just bringing that up I know you have no time for that and all so I don't bring it up but every once and a while, maybe we can do that video yoga session we were speaking of sometime? But yeah life changed when cell phone came out, for better or worse luckily I didn't have one till 09 because I didn't want tied to a phone and I was just kidding about the comment about you making a metal cd! On your comment last night I know you know that I can't lose your friendship no way but being sure, we'll have a great day talk soon:)
