This is Days 9, 10 and 11 of the Gratitude Challenge.
Where would we be without the the good old world wide web? Our phones. Laptops. Tablets. Even self service checkouts in stores. Medical technology, irrigation technology, all sorts. Technology has definitely given us a better standard of living. While some of it seems to have a negative effect on society, the good outweighs the bad.
Quiet. Tranquility is something we all need. For me, mine is when I’m walking home from the station. It’s quiet and peaceful and there’s no one else around. It gives me time to just think and reflect on the day. I’m thankful for that.
To contrast, noise is something I need sometimes. Too much quiet can turn into something else for me. I usually counteract that with music. I love music. It can be anything. Sometimes it’s emotional songs that speak to me, other times it’s upbeat jams that I can move to. I think we all need that variety.
