“Disconnect To Connect”
Is it me? Can you see it? Can you feel it? Do you live it? Is the numbness at your dinner table, stronger than your willingness and desire to connect with your loved ones?
More than ever, our electronic devices keep us well connected. Emotionally, they keep us disconnected. The warmth of a hug, emotions, reactions, and the beauty of our voice, cannot be experienced via text messages, or social media shares.
With a few clicks, you can share a child’s smile with millions. However, that smile is always brighter in person. While social media has its place, I personally believe it should not reside at dinner tables.
Is it me? Can you see it? Can you feel it? Perhaps you live it? Is your desire to emotionally connect with your loved ones, strong enough to dethrone that powerful numbness that surrounds your dinner table?
Go ahead. Put it down. Now is a good time. You will not be popular, but you just might start a new Thanksgiving tradition. You might even discover a thing or two about your children, or perhaps about yourself.
Go ahead. It’s ok to think different. Happy Thanksgiving!
