Hi guys,

Today I want to share an experience with you that I just wrote about in my weekly eZine. Nothing hugely profound really, just a couple of thoughts worth mentioning.

As you probably know by now I am in lovely Denmark, the country where I grew up. I am conducting a healing retreat with a close friend.

During my stay here, I have been shying away from the computer almost all together, leaving only Mondays to stay in touch with you, my community, friends etc.
You see, one of MY own personal objectives during this quiet time was to “conquer” what I would term my “my increasingly alarming computer addiction”, or better still, “my other-worldly existence”…

I realized that since my book launch in June, which required a constant strong online presence, a huge part of me simply remained in the virtual world of cyber space. My new existence had gradually engulfed me, and had become almost more “real” than my physical surroundings…It was eating away too much of my time and affecting my creativity (and without my creativity, I haven’t got anything to share on the internet anyway) Hmmmmm!

The Internet with all its trimmings is a wonderful thing, no doubt. It gives us so much access, so many opportunities to connect and make things happen on a global scale. It saves us time.
But it also steals of our time, unless we find an appropriate balance for ourselves between “the old and the new”, the “real and the virtual”.

I literally live and operate in several countries. Most of my clients, my coaching course, my radio show etc. are in the US - but I live in Europe most of the time. So I appreciate and quite honestly DEPEND on the Internet for both my work and my social life. However, for the last couple of weeks I have been joyfully reminded that the world still stands the next day, and the next, if I (horror!) leave my computer shut, if I don’t check my mails every day and respond immediately etc etc.

What a relief! I’m not THAT important – but “important” enough to still be around and have a place in the world even if I’m not available online 24/7!

Ahhhhhhh, time for cuppa tea and then maybe a good long walk along the coast afterwards, and then maybe…

Now that you're here, I'd like to share with you about this Week's - Your Voice Is Your Calling Card - Show on Real Coaching Radio Network, Tuesday 1 pm (13:00) EST/19:00 CET.
