Social But Alone.

Social media is like gas – it expands to fill whatever space you give it. The questions become:
1. Are we so busy blogging about our families that we’re actually ignoring them?
2. Are we so consumed with sharing our experiences that we’re actually missing out on our lives.
Here’s what I’ve learned (and desperately struggle to practice):
We don't need to apologize to our children for working. They don’t need us to be sorry, they need us to be present.
It doesn’t matter if we engage with technology and social media to feed our families or to feed our souls; it’s our work. It’s important and it’s not the problem.
The problem is being constantly distracted and never fully present.
