Detaching … from the Cell Phone

The other day I went to the beach for a couple of hours.  Stopped at the store.  Went home.  Somewhere along the way I realized that I didn’t have my cell phone with me.  I realized it with a brief thought that came and went with no concern. 

Hallelujiah!  I have detached from my cell phone! 

When my boys were active in their addiction, I might as well have had that phone sewn onto my skin; I never let it leave my hands.  I was too worried I’d miss some all-important call.  Every call and every text seemed to carry life-and-death potential.  Of course I was exaggerating the urgency of it all, but clearly I wasn’t in control

Anyone else need a cell phone-ectomy?  Try it one day.  Tell it how much you care, and then leave it home.  Detaching with love.

  1. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to detach, but still got little ones 😦

  2. I am still clinging to mine but check this out….I can leave it upstairs when I am downstairs without freaking out. I still have a long way to go.

    My son has plugs but if he ever got the holes as big as the ones here I would cut his ears off.

    Not really, but I’d want to.

      LOL – Barbara, your sense of humor brings me joy! Neither of my boys have done anything to their ears. I am grateful for small favors! I think going downstairs and leaving the phone upstairs is very commendable. Bravo!

  3. I wish it could be easy. Sadly most of us don’t have that option. 🙂

      I know. It’s not easy and for some, not possible. Please know my heart and prayers are with you. I feel grateful for the current health of my family. I also know it’s still one day at a time for all of us. God bless you.
