Every summer, for as long as I can remember, I have always made a list of summer goals. They always included things like “get tan” and “swim as much as possible,” but this summer, I only have one goal. My goal this summer is to spend time with my family. When I say spend time with my family, I mean really be there in the present moment. I am 100% guilty of constantly being on my phone and my laptop. I am so consumed by what’s going on on social media that I fail to truly appreciate and utilize the time that I should be spending with my favorite people in this world.
