Over the weekend, we had a Winter Storm, which still hasn’t left yet. Spring? Are you there yet??
During this storm, our power was out for a period of time, which made us “kick it old school!” We had more conversations that did not require “texting”, we did some writing that required a “pen and paper”, and we picked up books to read. To be honest, it was refreshing!
It made me think of all the technology we take for granted.
I learned to type on a “manual” typewriter, I remember 8-track tapes, when we watched TV we had 3 channels to choose from and we actually had to get up of the couch to change the channel! Boy how spoiled we have become 😊
Once the power came back on, I found myself missing the past, missing how great it was to sit down and actually write a letter to someone, put it in an envelope, write their address on the front, and mail it; waiting for weeks to receive their response in the mail. The anticipation of waiting to receive a letter from a friend or family member was like Christmas morning.
I highly recommend, “kicking it old school” every now and then; not only does it give us a chance to walk down memory lane, but it gives us a sense of gratitude for what we take for granted today.
