Being Available Or Not

Living in a 24-7 world

Turning off

Tuning out

Electronically

and

in Person

can be a challenge.

Expectations

may be

to be

Always Available.

Some sleep

with their phones

at their bedside.

For emergencies

only?

Always

for some.

To spend time

in person

is another expectation

entirely.

Some insist

taking some of

another’s time

in person.

Surely

there are people

we want to spend time with

face to face,

eye to eye.

How can we

prioritize and choose

who we spend

real time

with?

Insisting

that time to be together

is necessary,

do you feel

like you must make an excuse?

Can you just

indicate that

it is not possible?

A cartoon

shows a man on the phone

saying

“No Thursday’s out.

How about never

-is that good for you?”

If you are laughing

and nodding your head,

think how you can modify

managing and prioritizing

your time and availability.

Perhaps

your

inner voice is

saying to you

that your excuse is

“I am going to be

contemplating

my navel!
