Show Love by putting down your Phone

This time of year, Valentine’s, can be a difficult season for many people. Not everyone has someone to share it with and I think it is important that we show love to not just our Valentine, but also the people around us. Remember to act kindly to the people you encounter though the day. Have conversations at the check-out. Smile at the people passing you by. Don’t forget to look around you and notice what is going on. We may all be on our technology but that doesn’t mean the world around us stops. We have a responsibility to interact with the world, not just walk though it. We could very well miss out on showing kindness to someone who needs it.

I challenge you to put down your phone and make a conversation today. It may be awkward at first, but you may discover something as you do it!

  1. Completely agree! I actually have had severe arguments with parents at my school (I’m a school administrator) because I enforce what my Board believes: cell phones are not permitted at school. May be archaic to some, but honestly, kids have so many problems with communication as it is . . . great post!
