I took this test some time ago, and I was shocked (dismayed) that I scored as high as I did. In the time since, I have tried hard to make changes. This morning I took the test and although the score is still higher than I want it to be, it is lower :) So I count that as a step of victory in the right direction. Now to continue working towards a lower score. I can do this! I will have a cell phone, but the cell phone will not have me! 💪There is a life to be lived without looking at the screen … people around me to interact with … and I need to spend some precious time with ME, cause I am worth it. I like having a cell phone to stay in touch with family & friends, for information when I need it - BUT, it needs to be a tool in this life. NOT life itself.
Take the test for yourself. Have someone who observes you regularly take it on your behalf. Take the test from your perspective as a parent or grandparent. Believe me, it is a wake up call - to LIFE!
Why this page?
I wanted a place to share coffee thoughts & memes. I use Facebook & Twitter to do just that, however, I realize that many people are getting fed up with all the drama that is on either, and both. So many that were using those 2 social medias to stay in touch, have taken a step back - yet they still want to know thoughts that go thru this scattered widow's brain. If you are interested, here it is :) - - without the drama.
