I cut my cable back to nill yesterday. I’ve still got HBO until TrueBlood is over. I’ve got back up plans for Dexter and Mad Men. And I’ve still got my $8.00 a month for Netflix streaming.
Mike and I were talking about how getting rid of all the clutter of the channels forced him to become a more active viewer rather than a passive one. I like that. I like making a conscious decision about what I’m feeding my brain rather than just numbingly snacking on crap channel after channel after channel.
I’m happy with my thought out decision. Just pulling the plug. I admit I did up my internet speed. I’ll be streaming more from Netflix and wanted to make sure there were no problems. But still. Savings is savings.
My latest viewing addiction is Friday Night Lights. I cannot recommend a show more. I watched 6 hours last night. SO GOOD. Quality.
it occurs to me…this is also a nice little way to think about life, eh?
Active living vs Passive Living
Purposefully choosing what we do with our life rather than the opposite.
Taking the power back over things that seem to rule us. Pulling the plug.
