Dear Technology,

I have a very love hate relationship with you. On the one hand, the things you allow me to do are incredible. I can connect with people all over the world! I can learn new things! I can write this blog right here! I can get advice and give advice! I can watch videos! I can hear music! I can do so many things.

On the other hand, you can be a really big time suck sometimes. It is easy to end up watching tv shows on Netflix for hours or playing more of a silly Facebook game or getting bogged down in a meaningless discussion. You can be used for evil – to hurt feelings and to bully people.

And I have some questions for you. Why is it that babies (and like 95 percent of people*) are attracted to you? Why is it that we can become so dependent on you? Why are you sometimes so expensive?

But I have to tell you Technology, I have some bad news. I want to live more of my life offline and not be online all the time. I want to strive to live without you sometimes. Don’t worry, I won’t abandon you completely – I like Facebook and I love to blog, but I need to spend some time apart from you. I need my personal space. It’s not you, it’s me.** But don’t be lonely if I try to spend more time outside the summer, especially if I try to spend more time outside with my littlest man. There will always be a place for you in my life, but it’s time that I found some space and some balance.

Sincerely,

Just a girl in search of balance

*Not a real statistic, I just made up that number

**Well, maybe it is you a bit.
