However, much of the craziness is self-imposed. Or at we least passively allow it to continue.
You do have the power to reign it in you know…
Turn off the TV. Don’t check Facebook. Turn off email notifications. Check emails and texts every few hours instead of constantly. Delay responding to people. Cut back on the junk surfing. Quit reacting.
Quit consuming for a one damn minute.
What’s that sound? It’s the sound of silence. Foreign isn’t it?
It’s even a little disconcerting.
Does the thought of being out of the loop make you nervous? Good. That means you’re addicted to the madness. And addicts aren’t in control of their lives, they just live for the next hit.
Don’t give outside forces the reigns then complain about how things turn out.
Do you ever get the nagging feeling that something isn’t “quite right” with modern daily life, but can’t really put your finger on it? You know what I’m talking about – the whole, 9-5, the commute, the coming home just to pop on the TV or surf around looking at some bullshit, going to sleep, then getting up the next morning just to do the same thing.
