Computers / Technology

I’m sure I’ve brought this up before regarding people who go for a walk, walking the dog or their children and they take their mobile phones with them but I’m afraid I’m going to have to harp on it again.

1509922_383015748509613_1178468502_nWhy?  Because I just saw a man mowing his lawn with his mobile phone on his shoulder and talking.  For God’s sake (excuse the language) but seriously?  You couldn’t take time out of your day to stop and mow the lawn?  How long does it take?  Could the person on the other end of the phone hear you?  Was it necessary?

We’re technology mad and it’s time to stop.

Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge technology nut.  I love learning new software and getting a new computer, I could be on it for hours!  Even weekends, people know that I could spend hours on the internet but there’s got to be a time to just “SHUT DOWN!”

There’s a time and a place.  You have to learn to talk to people, read a book and not just on your IPAD – something you can hold and physically turn the page.  Taking your child to the park and watching them climb on the monkey bars and climbing up with them remembering what it was like and then helping them slide down the slide, not because they’re afraid but because you can be seen to be sliding without being laughed at.

Technology has a place in our world, just remember it’s a “place” and not “the WORLD” to us.  We have to remember to have a life and having a life affords us the luxury of technology.  Don’t let it take over your life… there’s so much more to learn and it’s not always on “the net”.1551760_725079914176495_1184193210_n

Step away from the computer, mobile phone and any other technology that takes up too much of your time!!!!!

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. What do I want to do? I have my new house and am enjoying making it my own but now I am looking for the right job for me after 10 years of being "just a receptionist". I don't want to be "JUST" anything anymore. I would like a job that helps me grow personally, something that encourages me to learn but also where I can be creative and people appreciate me. I want, I want, I want but really I need to know that I am comfortable in my own skin and my life means something to me. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
