My first inspiration, to put down the phones for a few hours everyday, and enjoy life is Rachel Macy Stafford from the Hands free mama. http://www.handsfreemama.com/
This book really touched me somewhere deep within, moved me and inspired me to do something different, to do more than checking phones with every ding.
It is after reading this book, that I actually started writing blogs..My diary about my children and my family, and I am proud to have done so.. I have with me the small moments of joy captured, tucked into a diary which have become fond memories…
Am sharing a few pics of cards which my then, 3-4 year old daughter had made for my birthday.The small gifts made by her, are joy for life, which no amount of money can buy, the treasured memories, which would’ve long been forgotten…
All of these were possible, because I decided to put my distraction away for the time I was with them, and devoted that time wholeheartedly to them.
As you are all aware, my dear fellow blogger Pradita and I have started an initiative to go phone free on the last Sunday of every month. Here comes the second chance to join in. Tomorrow, being the last Sunday of the month, we try and make it a social media free day and be there wholly and fully with people who matter to us. There is absolutely no compulsion, join only if you see the positives.
Link for the dos and don’ts have been listed here by Pradita. https://thepraditachronicles.com/2017/03/25/fone-free-day-an-initiative/
Please, feel free to join in this initiative to go hands free. Make a small beginning.
