September 4, 2013


My dear sweet friend, Ally, posted this on Facebook today.
I didn't even make it to the 30 second mark before a wave of conviction set it.

You've got to see this...


What a battle. Especially in the days of smart phones and social media at our fingertips.
I so desperately needed to be reminded that being present is far more beautiful and memorable than any Instagram photo ever will be.

Are you in the same boat too?

  1. Love this. It's so easy to get caught up with what's in or on our phones/computers/tablets/etc...

    A perfect mid-week reminder :)

  2. Thank you for sharing, this really rings true sometimes!

  3. I am definitely guilty and I DO realize it. I do try not to use my phone as much as I used to for this specific reason, but we are definitely caught in that wave. The last few concerts and events I've went to, I actually just sat there and enjoyed it without any photographs to 'prove it'.

  4. So true, and we allow it to happen.

  5. Wow that was convicting. Especially as bloggers we can so easily get sucked into checking our phones every minute on social media. Never ending cycle. Time to put away the phone for awhile and live life- real life. thanks for the reminder
