My Tech-Minimized/Old Fashioned Life

My goal is not necessarily to be in the dark ages with no electricity at all (actually, I would probably do fine with that), but I have a goad to minimize tech and it’s over-reach in my life. I do not believe a high-tech life makes anyone’s life better. May make it more convenient or more comfortable. May promote laziness and kill traditional store fronts over time that cannot compete with prices with littleoverhead. May be a tool of greedy people to gain power. So many options, but rarely does it make life or social interactions better. Often, it is quite a bit worse. And I do not like who I am with a phone in front of me all the time. Best thing I ever did was get off all anti-social media and minimize tech in my life. I do not auto-pay any bills. I do not have many online accounts at all. I am old fashioned by choice and love it. My kids love it. My husband loves it. I get things done. My house is clean and organized. My kids and I converse eye to eye, face to face. It is amazing how much better behaved my kids are when they know they have my attention. Yes, I have to call people to find somethings out that people foolishly only post on Facebook which I have no access to, but when the right people know I am not on social media, they call me or text (because most people do not people anymore) and I find out what is important and beautifully ignore what is not. Life has enough distractions. And I sincerely feel I have a close relationship to God because I am not on antisocial media or unnecessary tech. It was hard to find time before because extra time was taken being anti-social. Without that, I have time to be vailable and be still with God and read my Bible and it is so very cool! That is the best thing of all. Praise God for releasing me from that horrible addiction. 1 year sober now! Woo hoo!😄❤
