you're not gonna reach my telephone.

Too many people, including me, text wayyy too much. I've caught myself texting while I'm at dinner with someone and I get so mad at myself because I'm not letting myself be in the moment and enjoy the company I'm with. I know parents say that and it seems annoying, but if you think about it, it is so true. If you're out with your friends, try to keep the texting to a minimum. You'll never know what you're going to end up missing out on or even doing to your friendship by focusing more on the people texting than who you're with. This week I haven't had my phone around me as much as I usually do and it felt amazing. I spent more time thinking about the present and leaving time for me whereas usually if I have my phone, I get caught up in talking to different people, worrying if certain people aren't texting me, etc. Try to have even a day where you hardly look at your phone- you'll be surprised with how you feel.
