Nearly ten years ago I put my television in the trash. Since that day my life has been an endless string of adventures, enlightenment, awakening, learning and growing. I’ve learned to spend more time living, as opposed to imagining life vicariously through characters on a screen. I began to read more and interact more with friends and family. My powers of discernment and ability to find resolutions increased. I became calmer, less on edge. I no longer wanted things I didn’t need. These things and many others have changed in my life. The most amazing thing about this journey is I’ve never missed television. I thought I would, but it was like a huge burden released, an albatross I let fly away. I am incredibly happy with the person I’ve transformed into. I am certain I will never turn back. Television is out of my life for good.
