because if I can do it, anyone can :)
Being a mom, who’s husband is deployed, life can feel sort of non stop and hectic some days. I have been doing pretty well at working out lately. It’s hard sometimes to even get to the gym, I will go into more detail in a later post. But once I start working out its usually great!
Thursday I went to the gym. I dropped our son off in the gym day care, grabbed my water, powdered my nose and hopped on the treadmill. As soon as I did this I realized I did not have my phone with me. I began retracing my steps in my head while warming up with a walk. Nothing convinced me that I had any idea where it was. I began freaking out inside my head. “What if I dropped it?” “Did I leave it in the truck? If I did, is someone going to break in and try to get it? Wait! Did I even lock the doors?!” I felt lost and scared as if my bank account got hacked or someone broke into our home. I felt the urge to jump off the treadmill, grab my son and run home so I could see that my baby, phone, truck and home were all safe and sound. I eventually calmed my brain down, resisted the insane urge, and told myself that I probably left it at home, being that I was in a rush when I left. I began to run and forgot all about it.
Having this happen for the first time in a very long time it made me realize that I am too attached to my phone. How many of you feel like you have the same problem? What do you all do to keep from using your phone so much?
I remember growing up without cell phones. I remember breaking down in my car when I was in high school and walking to find a house with someone home that had a phone so I could call my parents. Isn’t it crazy that that was just like 12-13 years ago? That’s like yesterday! Well, the phone was right where I left it when I walked out the door. After the “incident” I’ve been trying to leave my phone alone more often. Maybe I can detach myself from it some.
I hope you all have a great week!
