Coffee Talk with Nadine…Off The Grid

Have you ever wanted to just check out for a while? Life and obligations have you tied up in knots.

Longing for a relaxing day, week or month where you didn’t have to be accountable to anyone but yourself. Lost in mindless activities.

But you are so tied to these electronic leashes called Facebook, I-phone, I-pad, email, et. al?

Why don’t you join me?

Give yourself an adult time out. Challenge yourself to find some quiet time and reconnect with what gives you balance and purpose. Is it gardening? Reading? Riding? Painting? Dancing? Writing?

Separate yourself from a world rigged to distract you.

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it.” ~ Isaiah 30:15

I’m taking myself off the grid to write for 30 days. A lofty goal. And I’ll admit I’m having a few withdrawals to the usual routine. I had no idea it would take such a concentrated effort since I’m so used to reaching for my phone before I reach for my coffee (Caffeine, it’s crazy, I Know!) and checking in with what my kids, family and friends are doing. But it’s an adjustment I’m willing to make.

At least for 30 days.

Now, back to writing. Only 48,290 words to go!

Disconnectedly yours,

Nadine Bodine

Your very BEST friend in the whole wide world!
