The Price of Convenience
Yesterday's Autumn Blog Challenge Question: Do you think we've made our lives more complicated by trying to make things more convenient?
I do think we have complicated things some with the modern conveniences we now have. In particular, with technology. Some things I can think of is that while it's nice to shoot a friend or family member a quick email to see how their day is going, the sentiment of writing a personalized letter seems to be somewhat of a lost art. Along the same lines, texting has become just as common as a phone call, and to me isn't as personalized. We used not to have to worry about people getting into accidents from talking on their cell phone or texting while driving. These are some complications that cause concern.
To be fair though, technology advancements have their upside. Since computers and the dawn of the Internet I have my blog which I love to write through and have met so many wonderful people as a result of it. If I do have an emergency on the road or away from home I know my cell phone is right there when I need it. So yes, we have made our lives somewhat complicated by making it more convenient, but it also has made things better in ways.
