It has been a couple of days since I sat down and wrote anything. I just needed to replenish my inner being. For the longest time now I have practised not watching news channels on the weekend. I had already pulled the plug on other social platforms. Now I am trying to unplug, or at least cut down on my television viewing. It is a habit that has really taken control since I was limited on any physical motions.
Saturday was great less t.v. and more blog reading which was fantastic. Sunday the phone rings, it is my daughter calling saying she and the grandchildren were on their way to pay a visit. I always look forward to their visits. So, their visit helped boister my ambition to curb the tube watching.
Their orginal visit was to be on Father’s Day but due to one of the kids being sick it was put off for a later time. Well, I was totally surprised when I was handed a box which contained a picture of the grandchildren on a canvas backing. I was also given a CD of a singer I enjoy because of his music reminds of some of the greats like Sinatra. So, yesterday, Monday I put it in the CD player, sat back and played Mahjong and totally went to a relaxing time. It set in motion my mood for the rest of the day.
I just came in from going for a longer walk with my best friend and my dog. Oh, how it felt so great to spend some time in the fresh summer air with the warm sun hitting my face.
I would invite you to try and unplug from all the outside influence from television to social media. Take time to enjoy family, friends, and the great outdoors. It will do your inner man a world of good.
