From time to time – though not as much as I should, I unplug.
The benefits are so many. Doing so allows me to let go of work for a day or two. It allows my eyes to rest. It allows me to move and stretch my body. It allows me to be fully present with my family.
There is a down side though, and that is when I forget the big obligations I have.
I can’t be perfect all the time, but seriously, I’m pretty upset about it. There could be some heavy implications from it.
In this world of struggling to create balance so badly, I let go just a little too much.
Have you ever done this? Been so present with your family, you have forgotten a work obligation? What happened and how did you move forward?
