Life is filled with beautiful events.
When these events happen, the first thing we want to do is take a photo, or share it on Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook. The reason we do this is because we want our friends and family to know the cool event that we are experiencing. We want people to almost feel this sense of jealousy. We want people to wish they were there with us.
I challenge you to distance yourself from taking photos as much as you do now. Some moments are so beautiful and we don’t take them in because we are too worried about pulling out our smartphone. When something beautiful in your life happens, soak it in. Smile. Laugh. Cry. Show emotion & experience emotion. It will do your heart so good. I’ve seen so many beautiful things in this short life I’ve lived. I’ve witnessed proposals, stunning fireworks, funny acts and so much more but I have no pictures to show for it. That is because I decided to live in that moment and experience it in the fullest.
Besides, people don’t need to know what you’re doing 100% of the time anyway?
