Striking Truths


  1. So true…it’s all about balance and moderation in one’s life. That’s one reason we love to RV – it gets us out and about. But I wouldn’t want to give up the internet completely because it is my connection to very gracious and talented women around the world.

  7. It’s so easy to get caught up in useless things online, and especially if you’re working online it’s hard to sometimes unplug for a bit.
    I always feel it’s easier to unplug when I have other things to do, like gardening or painting.

  8. I love this! A few weeks ago, I took a technology vacation. It helped me so much. I wrote on my blog about it and how those of us that are creative suffer from too much technology. Or I do atleast. I feel like the wonderful world of pinterest puts so much into my head that sometimes I can’t hear my own creative voice. Anyways, that’s my story and connection with your image. I think it’s a great one! :)

  9. LOVE this.

  10. Perfect.♥ I’m off to do just that.

    Have a great day, Melissa.

  11. I agree completely! and this is a good reminder. I am on my way outside to work on a landscaping project, which I enjoy.
    I enjoy reading but lately what my husband says is true “you don’t read books, you just collect books” So it is time to return to my love of reading. I don’t do Facebook or Twitter.. my friends can hardly believe it.. but it works for me.
    I’ll be visiting my daughter soon and instead of working every minute on a project we will spend the time basking in the sun by the pool. Woo Hoo.

  12. Yes! Absolutely. Sometimes keeping up with all the blogs causes me anxiety. I really need to set a timer and limit my online time.
    Thanks for the reminder.

    Yes, sometime, we have to take a rest and see the beauty of outside world.
    In this manner, we can keep a healthy mind and we can free our self from all the stress we have acquired online!

  18. I am so overwhelmed and frustrated bc of dealing with Medicaid forms and bureaucrats…for my 87 year old mother. I needed this reminder! Wish I had it on a poster to hang by my bathroom mirror! Thank you!!

  19. Last Friday afternoon I vowed to have an unplugged weekend. Every summer my work gets crazy busy and I spend so much of my day staring at the computer my eyes really start to feel strained. I can’t say that I was 100% successful being offline ALL weekend, but Saturday night at midnight Hubby and I were swaying in the hammock having a deep discussion about the Big and Little dippers….I call that pretty darned successful. Thanks for the reminder!!
