Sometimes it can be the smallest changes we make that makes all the difference. This may not seem like much but I have one such thing — I’ve allowed my subscription to TV Guide to expire. This is my declaration that the TV viewing schedule will not rule my life.
Does this mean I will no longer watch TV, or my favorite programs? No. As a single person, I find the television often fills the silence of my home.
What it does mean is that my life will not revolve around whether or not I will miss a favorite program. Technology now permits that I will watch a program on my schedule and, if I never get around to it, oh well. It wasn’t that important anyway. It is a letting go.
It does mean, hopefully, if I miss a favorite program, I am out building real relationships — involving myself — exercising my introversion.
