In this society, media is quite important for the adolescent. Being part of the “In” crowd, knowing trends, and who’s who in the celebrity circuit can definitely impact peer relationships.
So, when my mom pulled the cable on the television, I thought my world caved in. It’s been 2 years with no TV. And guess what? I survived. I wouldn’t say that I thrived, but yes, I see that my life is definitely going in the right direction.
No more mindless hours of watching mindless shows. No more vegging out on the couch with junk food, mesmerized by the boob tube.
Ask me what’s going on in the latest TV show or world events, and most of the time, I’m the last one to know. But actually this is a good thing. Most of the information on the television is heart wrenching, fear based and totally ungrounding.
It’s pretty much information that will not serve me on any healthy level. Instead, I focus on my heart centered puppy, my school work, my healing work, my immediate family and friends, and my goals. And all of this encompasses my overwhelming Gratitude for this blessed life that I have.
Hind sight is always 20/20. And I can see clearly now that the chaos of TV has been removed from the household. And more importantly, there is no more fighting over the remote control.
It’s nice to have a more peaceful home.
