My Love/Hate Relationship With Technology

Friday, July 27, 2018

I was recently asked the question will I be upgrading my phone. And my first response was NO! before I could even think about it the answer was no. That question had me thinking of all the reasons I love technology and also why I hate it.  I use my IPhone for normal everyday phone use. Work calls, personal call (Mostly texts because I'm not a fan of phone conversations) Social media and emails.

I have a love/ hate relationship with technology because I know of all the good it does and how convenient it is. I can transfer money between accounts on bank apps. I can quickly respond to emails and have 24/7 access to people, friends etc. Social media in itself can be full time job for some people. Technology has come so far and has advanced so much, it's hard not to love it and be around it all the time. It has become a permanent part in our lives. Checking your phone when you wake up before checking on your family is a normal in our society. And I'm not counting myself out of it. Just and observation.

But on the opposite side It is so impersonal. I just notice the lack of real life communication because of technology. Everything is so online based and we have access to peoples personal lives 24/7 and I don't think that's healthy.

A personal life should be just that personal. If you choose to have a blog and share parts of your home, life, etc then that's Great! I'm all for it, but seeing all the gossip blogs and just junk is just ridiculous.

I love social media and all the wonders of technology but I do miss the personal relationships and skills that were developed without it.

Overcoming Fear & Just Be Happy... (Free Spirit Friday)

Friday, November 7, 2014

This past week has been a battle of emotions for me.....I'm not going to lie. Over coming fear or the feeling of rejection can be one of the hardest things to deal with! But knowing that end result will pay off is what should really be the main focus. Stepping out on the limb and doing something you may have never done before gives me the bubbly feeling in my stomach. Actually when I think about it I just want to curl up in a ball and hide lol But this is life and you cant do that or you will never grow and prosper. I'm writing this post to say....well, never let fear or rejection stand in the way. Yes its there, and in present time its the worst most scary feeling ever. But getting over a challenge and doing it still gives you a sense of accomplishment for me at least it does. Even if you fail, you can always say you tried and took a big step. I would say try not to think of the cons or what can go wrong, but rather think of the good and how happy you are, doing something you love. If you want to join a sport but you may not have the confidence to do it. Just think what if you go out there and make a killing! Stop thinking of the bad in every thing you do. I feel like that's how you grow. just take a leap and go for what you like to do. You don't get anywhere if you don't at least try. Even if you had no one to believe in you. believe in yourself (cliche line) I know but very accurate. You are in control of your own life not others. and well sometimes you have to think outside the four walls you live in.
There's a whole world out there just for you. It doesn't just belong to one person or only certain people. It belongs to everyone and  we should all enjoy our lives and do what makes you happy! Stepping over the small hurdle of fear can get us so much further. I'm not just talking about jobs or careers, even in you personal life. You are never stuck in any situation! We all deserve to be treated right and fairly, we also have the right to be just HAPPY! what ever happen to that. Sometimes it seems like when your happy people can be so judgmental, like calm down I, we, people, have the right to be HAPPY! sooooo ...I hope I didn't bore you with my little rant. But its friday and I'm calling it free spirit friday! A time to just chill relax and express my thoughts. Anyways love you

until next time
