Sometimes, people can get lost in social media and technology and not truly connect with their loved ones…For example, I’ve noticed families will be eating out at a restaurant and almost every single person is on their phone. It makes me a little sad inside to see people forgetting to truly interact with one another. Hopefully, we can all gently remind each other of being present, in the moment.
I purchased a book about Native American myths from a vintage shop. Later, I thought to myself that maybe I could get my husband to read parts of the book with me. It may seem sort of silly but I felt that it would be a great way to spend time together. Instead, of mindlessly watching tv and stuffing our mouths with food. We’re trying to not make that a habit…
Today, he laid on my laps and at first he was fidgeting a lot and messing with me but when I started to read he remained calmed. I got nervous and started to overthink that maybe he wasn’t interested or something but I kept reading. Once, I finished reading he said he actually enjoyed it. And we ended up reading short stories to each other 🙂
We’re in our 20’s, really early 20’s…Part of the reason why I was drawn to buy this book is because he is part native and I thought it’d be nice to learn more about it. Needless to say, it made me really happy that we were able to do something like that.
Thanks for reading <3
