You know I’m all about applying perspective as much as possible when living our daily lives. It’s also one of the topics we frequently discuss with our kids – 10, 16 and 18yo. One of the questions we entertained ourselves with over NYE was about how the world looked / worked before the internet.

The following quote is what especially caught my attention:

Instead of wondering what should I do, we wonder what did I miss. It’s almost like our unconsciousness is a kind of failure and we can’t believe we’ve been offline for eight hours…”
