Confession: It is Friday afternoon as I write this; queuing it up to be released into the world tomorrow morning.
By the time you read this, I will already be basking in the glory of the great Canadian wilderness, off on a weekend camping trip.
My 14th act of kindness is one that I encourage you to consider as you begin your weekend. I’m simply not bringing my phone with me on this trip; completely disconnecting and giving the lovely people I’m with my undivided attention.
Those who know me are very familiar with the sight of my iPhone glued to my hand. Much to the chagrin of my mother, I’m one of those obnoxious people that walks and text as if it were an Olympic sport.
Full disclosure: I walked into a mailbox once. Nobody saw. So it basically didn’t even really happen, right? Phew.
Over the last few months, my obnoxious phone usage has been at an all-time high. So although the idea of leaving my phone behind is already giving me a little bit of separation anxiety, I know that it will be much appreciated by my companions.
And with that, I have completed two full weeks of acts of kindness. Despite some small bumps in the road, I am feeling like a bit less of an asshole as each day passes.
Total Kindess Cost: $0
When was the last time you put your phone away for a full weekend?
