OFFLINE? Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Just as you need to cut yourself from the outside world for a while each day to introspect and to find your bearings,
it might also be a good idea to wean yourself from the Internet, Social Networking sites in particular and gadgets once in a while.

A tall order? Indeed is, when virtual friends outnumber real ones, web surfing replaces physical discovery, 'Likes' on FB mean more to you than family feedback!

When was the last time you looked out of the window and really enjoyed the trees swaying in the wind?

Are you delighted by the sweet chirping of birds, the fresh smell of wet mud after the first rains? A fluffy, happy white cloud in a clear blue sky? The joy of hearing your favourite song at a cafeteria?

I love all of these, besides  a baby's smile, a walk in scenic surroundings, a creatively shot photograph, really funny lines..

You don't have to choose one above the other, that's the great part. Appreciate what life has to offer, enjoy the best of both worlds: the real and the virtual.
