As I continue to work on my digital detox, I keep these words in mind. Part Two of the detox process, tomorrow.
Stop whatever you’re doing for a moment and ask yourself: Am I afraid of death because I won’t be able to do this anymore? — Marcus Aurelius
“Routine, in an intelligent man, is a sign of ambition.” – W.H. Auden

Being together is a choice we make, daily. Every moment. Before every embrace. After every argument.
In the smooth and the rough, we choose. We choose to work for it. We choose to fight for it. We choose to love.

It the best choice I make every day.
From the incredible Patrick Rhone
