Kinda Wish I Lived In Olden Times

Yea I am 19 and I love tv and movies etc but sometimes I wish I lived when people lived out in the wilderness and there were less distractions and more focus on relationships/ the great outdoors. I think its kinda sad that things tht are meant to enhance life sometimes take a bit away from it too... Haha think I need to go on a camping trip to clear my head!

I totally agree with you but I have been there. When I was born we lived in the mountains, and we didn't have electricity, or plumbing in the house. It was a good life, but after you spend regular time of sweeping the snow off of the toilet seat in the middle of the night before you sit down you can really embrace todays comforts.

have you ever tried rock climbing? it sounds like it might suit you well

that stinks :(

I absolutely agree!! We're so distracted by the gadgets and gizmos and latest technologies of the modern era that we soon find it extremely difficult to slow down and appreciate the world around us. We may be walking down a sidewalk totally absorbed within a texting frenzy, passing right by a beautifully ornamented Autumn tree w/o even noticing. I think it to be a tragedy really. Not only do we become oblivious to the abounding wonders of our natural environment, we start losing touch with ourselves and the way to discovering the endless world of our potential within is obscured. When an individual becomes too immersed in this kind of superficiality, the more important things like relationships get put on the back burner. You know, a camping trip sounds like a really great idea right about now... LOL =)
