Mexico was awesome! We just got back from Puerto Vallarta celebrating the marriage of two amazing souls. I am so honored to have been a part of their journey! While we were there, I didn't wear my watch or keep my phone on me at all. It was a great feeling! Literally the only time I used my phone, was to call my son one day otherwise that was it. It was so nice not being tied to the time or who was posting what on Instagram. The feeling was such a relief!
We went out snorkeling and saw 4 humpback whales and guess what? I didn't take a single photo! And I am surprisingly okay with that. I wasn't worried about getting the camera in focus every time the whales surfaced. I was just excited to be seeing humpback whales for the first time ever and marveling in their beauty!
Now, back home, with my phone 6 inches away, the battery almost dead mid afternoon from too much use, I reflect on that freedom and want more of it. I want more times of not caring what time it is and less times of worrying about missing a call. I worry this feeling is only available on vacations or when I am on island time, but I will find that balance hopefully soon.
