“I wish I had spent more time on my smart phone.” ~no one on their deathbed…EVER!
Every day I observe people who spend significant time on their smart phones while ignoring those around them, even when those around them are family or friends. That always makes we wonder, “What on your smart phone is so exciting that it causes you to willingly ignore those right in front of you?”
The thought of our last days on earth tend to bring into focus what’s really important to us. Usually, what we say is most important are those closest to us. It is often these people that we would like to spend our last days on Earth with. I say, “Why wait until our last days? Why don’t we put down our devices and start connecting with those people NOW, before it’s too late.”
This may cause you to miss a few social media posts or spend less time playing your favorite game on your smart phone, but isn’t that worth it?
Hopefully, it is.
