I just watched this video, called “The Amish Project,” and the simple truth of it I found rather inspiring. And I thought it was such an awesome thing that this guy did, that I wanted to share:
I really admire that he was able to eradicate all these technological “hindrances,” if I’m allowed to say, from his life. I just think that that is so awesome. So many people, myself included, just waste countless hours of their days doing mindless things like Facebooking and watching YouTube videos. There’s nothing wrong with doing these things as long as it’s in moderation. Yet, I know I can just waste my day away doing these things.
There’s so much out there in life to live and do which will never get done by planting your butt in front of a computer screen or being glued to your phone. I think it’s a bit of an inspiration that, I believe his name is Jake, was really willing to get out and live his life a bit more.My favorite part of the video was near the end when he says, “I know what you’re going to say, ‘but this is the world we live in.’ Well maybe it’s time we live in it?” It’s just so true.
Now I’m not going to up and quit everything like he did, nor do I think that I’m “addicted” to social networking/texting/etcetera, but I think I’m going to be a little bit more aware about how I conduct my time. Or at least I’m going to try.
Bit of a short blog, but just wanted to share this.
