Over the noise

My cell phone calls sound amazing. In the last couple weeks my carrier upgraded and now it sounds like the person on the end of the line is right beside me. 

So tonight I did something I never do. Instead of scrolling through Instagram or Facebook for an hour, I made two phone calls and connected with two friends more intimately than I have with anything they’ve posted online ever.

Poor call quality and social media have the same result. Instead of getting what I want –connection with someone I care about– I get a lot of noise. 

If you’re not connecting the way you want to –with music or with your friends– find a way to turn down the noise and turn up the quality.
