I spent time with my daughter this morning. She gets up early, and comes in late, to spend as much of the day as possible with her guy. I have barely seen her, but it’s all good. We live together.
I opened a Snapchat account, and we send snaps to one another throughout the day. The thing I love about Snapchat is, it can capture your facial expression, and even modify it. We send some hilarious pics to one another, and it’s one way to maintain our connection even when she’s not here. Come find me on Snapchat as Letitgocoach, and let’s connect!
Connection is the sweet spot of life. I was reading my devotional a little while ago, and thought of my new friend that I met here on WordPress. She Blogs here, and reads the same devotional, so we have that connection. As I was reading mine, I wondered if she was reading hers. The name of her Blog is what drew me in, and now we are friends. Her most recent Blog is entitled, “It’s Okay“. I wrote one very similar during my 30 Days of Writing.
Technology can be good, if we use it for good. As I was writing this, a notification from Facebook popped up on the screen. It was letting me know that a couple of my friends had birthdays today. I stopped typing, and went in search of something to post of their wall.
It doesn’t take the place of human to human contact, but it helps. I had brunch with my daughter’s boyfriend’s Mother yesterday. We had a wonderful time, sitting in a beautiful restaurant, just getting to know one another. We already have a connection, our kiddos, so it was our time to connect, and we did. Through technology we can remain connected.
It’s how we choose to view it that matters. I was not excited about making this trip to Missouri, but now I can say, it has been a good experience for me. I’ve enjoyed it.
It’s easy for me to get caught up in my virtual world. When my daughter asked me to take this trip with her, it felt like I was being ripped out of my comfort zone on so many levels.
It was time for me to step out of my world, and really become connected.
