What did we do before social media? WE LIVED!!!!
Don’t get me wrong, I love social media! It keeps me connected to YOU, my friends and family. It can be a great to connect or form new business relationships. It can be inspirational, silly, or a down right distraction!
Tweet this–post that–blog about that. Picture for instagram–check in on four square– take a picture of my plate (this food looks great)–That’s cute, Put that on YouTube! That’s a good quote or scripture, let me post it.
At what point do we stop being so busy documenting life and watching the lives of others and just start living it.
The other day my husband and I went to the Mary J. Blige concert (it was awesome by the way), and a
girl young lady was sitting in front of us was on her phone 90% of the time on instagram liking pics from the concert that she was attending instead of enjoying the moment.
For some people living has been replaced with social media. We don’t do things anymore for the pure enjoyment of the moment anymore, everything is about sharing. When we get a new car instead of enjoying it and driving it when we leave the dealership, we go home and take pictures to upload to social media or instead of having a real relationship with God we post scriptures and text grams of the word instead of really studying. Life is to be lived and we spend most of it talking, being social, talking about our dreams instead of working on them. Social media was created for being social but not to replace living or for validation. At the end of the day when I leave here I want a legacy to be left, what did I do while I was here, who did I help, what impact did I leave? We only got one life to live so don’t spend watching life go by.
I have definitely been guilty of this, hope this helps you as well.
