Be Where Your Feet Are

A very good friend of mine often says on Twitter: "Be where your feet are."  I love that saying.  Have you noticed how much time you spend on your phone lately?  It's amazing if you think about it.  We are completely dependent on these little devices.  My friends call my iKatie...does that explain my addiction to my iphone? I was at a bachelorette dinner in NYC recently and noticed that we were all on our phones most of dinner.  How sad is that?  We were taking pics, tweeting, Facebooking, texting boys, etc....why not spend the time with the people we loved at the table?  Don't get me wrong, I am guilty of this too.

I was on vacation last week.  Ironically, the first day in the Cape, I was addicted to my phone....boy how things changed on day 2!  It was as if it was a message from the universe to "Slow the hell down and chill out!"  Needless to say, I got the memo when my iphone tried to go for a swim in the ocean.  It did NOT work out so well for said phone.  Go figure!  So, after the initial panic attack.  I actually sat and stared at the ocean, met amazing people I might not have otherwise...and found life went on without my iphone in tow all day every day.

So the life lesson of this blog is: "Be where your feet are.  Enjoy your time with the people you love."
