When we first lost the internet at work this morning, it was no big deal. It happens sometimes. It's off for a few minutes and then we are back up and running.
The few minutes became 30.
Then it was an hour.
Then we hit hour number two.
What in the world was happening here?! Were we doomed to be without internet ALL DAY long?!
And then just like that, it miraculously started working again.
Call me absolutely weird, but as the time clicked on without it, it became a challenge to figure out how I could still be productive without an internet connection.
I did something archaic. I opened a Word document.
Then I did something reaching even further back in time.
I pulled out a notepad and pen.
I know! Crazy, right?! And I got to work.
In some ways, it was kind of refreshing not to be connected. We've heard it all before about the need to disconnect, and I completely agree. Some people take a sabbatical from technology for a day each week. Like from ALL technology -- no TV, computer, iPad, phone, etc.
Hmmm, I wonder what that's like?
I've thought about it. And, if I could survive two hours without having internet, maybe I could try it...
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
