Quality time – friends and technology can co-exist

As I was sitting next to my very close friend at my dinner table, sipping on wine, having a great conversation and, at the same time, sending new updates on Twitter and posting on Facebook, whilst she was busy exploring my iPad, I thought of how we have evolved with technology.

My friend and I were both quiet happy discussing our life issues over wine and social media! Laptop and iPad at hand, together with two iPhones, were working in overdrive. Wow! Five years ago this would be unheard of.  I do have to take a moment and explain  that both my friend and I love our various types of technology and are big users of social media.  If, at the same time, we can add good conversation and consumption of quality wine to it – the evening could not get any better!

There are not many friends that you can have such a technologically advanced relationship with.  I most definitely value and cherish it.  In a couple of hours I managed to spend time with my dear friend, get her advice and insight on my life, pass some of my own ‘words of wisdom’, eat dinner, enjoy wine and increase my social media presence.  My Klout score better increase tomorrow!

I am grateful to have people in my life who ‘get me’ on various levels.  Some I can talk to about anything, some I can share my passion of technology with.  And some can combine both.

This is my way of saying thanks to all my friends and those very close to me for being there and understanding who I am and what I am about.  I make it my mission now to acknowledge each and every one of you.  Hopefully, 20 years from now, the simple pleasures of life can still be enjoyed to the max.

So I choose to be happy even when it’s almost impossible to smile! I choose friends who care! I choose those who want to be part of my life! And I thank you all from the bottom of my heart! Cheers!
