There comes a time in everyone's life when you stop cold in your tracks, shaken with the stark realization that you've become that very thing that ticks you off the most.
For some women, its our mothers. That's not my issue (mom). For others, we've become that person who nags their husband all the time. We have, in a sense, created a self-fulfilled prophecy.
Last night, it happened to me. BlackBerry on the couch beside me, I was checking it for the 65th time in the last half-hour. And it dawned on me that I had BECOME that woman, trailing behind her husband at the grocery store, stumbling in the dark trying to respond to her phone. I'm not at the stage where the phone comes dog walking . . . YET.
But I can see it's not far off. Tired eyes from squinting, stiff hands from typing, Ill just check my email one more time before I practice, before I meditate, before I make something to eat. I have become a slave to this device. I'm pulling out my hair. I can't stop myself. I'm deep in the throes of addiction.
