Being from the generation right before the internet, I can appreciate what life was pre- and post internet. I noticed almost immediately when I had regular access to the internet how 'captivating' it was becoming....and THEN Social Media hit me. From 2006 to current, I've been addicted! I really am THAT person. I rue the day I bought my first smart phone, and yet... This book hit me and freed me from wondering "WHY" am I #struggling so bad with my life? Being good enough, smart enough, friendly enough, witty enough, patient enough, pretty enough, fit enough, Christian enough.... #Struggles pointed me to a HUGE cause of my struggle. I appreciate the FREEDOM I will soon have from taking a heart look at my internet connection.

Like all Millenials, I take my mobile phone 'to bed' with me, except I don't mean that I sleep with it, but it's definitely on my bedside table - charging. And no, it's never switched off! So I occasionally hear the pinging from my What's App account when those 'mad', insomniac, or transatlantic friends of mine send me that Oh so important/interesting/must see video! & thus disturbing my sleep.
Only one problem: I'm not a Millennial. I'm a Baby Boomer! So I've observed everything that he's observed and been concerned about, and I should know/do better!! This is a very informative book. It makes you stop and look at exactly what you're allowing yourself to be sucked into… sleepwalking into the devil's trap of idolatry.
So, last night I switched off my phone before I went to sleep and, didn't look at it again until after I did my morning devotional, had my breakfast AND had a meeting with my Physiotherapist. And guess what? The world didn't end! Would you believe that?!!!
So now, I'm going to give myself periodic 5 minute breaks during the day, and build up to taking a sabbatical from my iDevices every week - on the Sabbath!
Definitely a book worth listening to. Many times.
