one hundred things i'd rather hold than my phone



            Something I have been really trying to do lately is to be more conscientious of how I spend my time. I only really got thinking about it when I was prompted to change my way of thinking. Instead of using the excuse that I simply did not have time to do something, I needed to be honest with myself: I simply was not making those things a priority. And that was a real eye opener. It really causes you to sit and reevaluate your self and how you choose to spend your time. Time, after all, is a gift, and it isn't promised to be there tomorrow.

            Following that, I stumbled upon this exercise, writing a list of things you would rather hold in your hands than your phone. Of course, what is more important than this list, is being intentional in putting my phone away and choosing to live in the moment, or if I have to, bring meaning to that moment by finding something else to occupy my mind and hands. And with that being said, here are a hundred things I'd rather hold than my phone, and as I hope a hundred possibilities I can choose from next time I find myself "bored."
