I’ve had my iPhone 6 for more than a year now. It’s not an iPhone 6 plus or an iPhone 6s but it does the job. Maybe a little too much. With it’s inevitable death I realized how much I relied on my phone for even the most mundane things. I could hear Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman ask, “you let that little device tell you what to do?”
I’ve switched to a cheap android phone in the meantime. The basic functions such as messaging and calling were there and I could even install a couple of apps for entertainment but that was it. I couldn’t really plan out my calendar, check my emails and track my day but it was enough.
And that’s what I learned.
Sometimes, enough IS enough.
- I may not have the fanciest phone but I can still use it to communicate with my friends and family.
- I may not have the best camera but it can capture memories just the same.
- Its features aren’t exceptional but I can rely on my phone in case of an emergency
Most of the time that’s all you need.
I’m grateful that my mom has a spare phone and we didn’t have to buy a new one. My iPhone is currently being repaired and I hope it comes back with all my photos and videos intact. It’s all I’m hoping for right now because those memories are very precious to me. Also hoping that when I get my phone back I won’t be as hooked on it as before. Consider this my pruning period or withdrawal stage from a life perpetually glued to my phone.
How about you? Have you been hooked too much to your phone lately?
I pray you find time disconnect even for a few hours just to see how different it is. 🙂
