Wise Brunette Unplugged

It’s a bird.  It’s a plane.  No, it’s  a wifi signal!  Thank goodness!  We’ve been without internet and television at the new house for 2 months (cue gasp).  It was kind of refreshing — to a point.  Unfortunately it has limited my blogging, shop updating, and general upkeep with the rest of society.  actually had to ask someone about the weather forecast.  So today, I’m typing this from a cute little cafe with free wifi a.k.a my parents’ kitchen.  We still have not committed to cable or internet at the house yet, as we are finally finishing up some renovations and slowly moving in.  Life without internet as a blogger and an online store owner has been challenging.  Can I get a what, what for 3G?  But as I sit here online, I think something needs to be said about the connectivity of our lives.  

Turn off your T.V., put down your phone, and shutdown your internet every now and then.  Ignore the addictions of Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.  Climb down from your online soapbox for awhile and try to remember the dark ages days without the internet.  Who cares what everyone else is doing?  Live in the moment without being plugged in.

Do you want to know what my beau and I have been doing a lot more of recently?  We’ve been listening to the radio, knocking out projects at the house, and actually having real conversation with one another sans laptops.  Yes, we will eventually get internet (and probably cable) at our house.  We aren’t cave men and I do have a business to run.  But when we do plug back in, I think I’ll make it a routine for us to put down the devices at least once a week and tune into each other.  Just some wise thoughts from my own online soapbox…


WISE WORDS: Tribute to Nelson Mandela

In honor of Nelson Mandela, it seems appropriate that today’s Wise Words belong to him.

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

“Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

Take these quotes with you and live better.  Be strong, push through, and you will be rewarded.  Thank you Nelson Mandela.  May you rest in paradise, as you continue to  inspire.

WISE WORDS: Finish Each Day and Be Done – Ralph Waldo Emerson



Wise Words from Ralph Waldo Emerson.  “Finish each day and be done with it.”  Stop thinking of the could haves, the should haves, and the screw ups because tomorrow is a new day.  Don’t dwell for you will have the opportunity to start fresh.  One day you’ll look black on some of the nonsense and wonder why you were so stressed out.  Perhaps it’s easier said than done, but I’m going to do my best to follow this advice from now on.
