This past weekend, while we were away for the 4th of July holiday, I had a profound realization of how addicted I've become to my iPhone. While I love many aspects of how technology enhances our lives and allows us to connect with one another in some very cool ways, I'm also aware of the potential dark side of being so connected technologically that we lose connection with ourselves, those around us, and what truly matters. In this week's video blog, I talk about this challenge that many of us face these days. I turned my phone off for 24 hours over the weekend.  Although this was simple to do on the surface, it wasn't all that easy... but some amazing things happened when I did. Check out the video below and feel free to leave a comment here on my blog about it. You can share thoughts, questions, ideas, insights, or anything else that this video inspires.
