“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.” ~Alice Morse Earle
While walking on the boardwalk last night, I noticed all of the groups of friends and families out doing things together–riding the 4 person bikes, roller skating, enjoying some music. And yet, with everything they could want right there in front of them, many of the people had their heads down, buried in their phones–yes, even while peddling!
I’ll be the first to admit my love for technology and social media. It’s erased boundaries of time and distance–connecting us in a way that’s never been possible. Being able to capture memories is also something I adore and having our phones at our finger tips now makes that a reality.
There’s a fine line between staying connected & capturing the moment and missing out on the here and now–the real life experience at hand. Don’t forget to appreciate the splendor of the little things that are happening right this very moment. Enjoy the day in its entirety.
