Crashed Computer -- Missing Communication

I went through the unimaginable over the past week and a half. My computer hard drive crashed. Luckily, I had backed up everything so I didn't lose much. There are messages and files that were sent to me that never arrived, but everything on my desktop survived.

 

The bad part for me was just being without my computer. For more than a week, I had: no email, no facebook, no calendar, no address book, and no way to do my work. I was lost. My entire life is now connected with my computer. Without it, I was lost.

 

That got me thinking (because there wasn't much else I could do!). I have become so attached to my computer as my means for communicating, that I was unable to keep up with most of my relationships without my computer.

 

Ouch! Shame on me! Isn't that taking the easy way out?

 

I email and chat on-line with friends and collegues because that's the easiest and most efficient way to keep in touch.

 

I keep track of Facebook so I'll know how my hundreds of friends are doing, even though I seldom interact with them.

 

Being without my computer for a week was a good reminder for me that I need to make sure that I intentionally put others first instead of relying on what's easiest and most efficient.

 

Oops. Sorry!
