The short video below is absolutely amazing… Gary Turk has written and spoken words that are deep and relevant to everyone today.
We have stopped ‘living’ in the present and started living in a world that thinks it is sociable via social media but is actually becoming increasingly anti-social.
Before I set up this site, I had made the decision to cut down on my social media use because I was becoming one of the people in the video.
I was taking photos wherever we went, before I ate, everyday and everywhere- not taking in the ‘moment’ as much as I would be without that damn phone in my hand!
The break from social media enabled me to realise that I didn’t need to share what I was doing, wearing, eating with the world. Did anyone really care? Even if I got so many ‘likes’ and comments – did any of it really matter if I was upsetting the people IN my life at that very moment by not connecting with them? What was the point of it all?
Social media is an amazingly effective tool to network and keep in touch, we just need to be careful to what extent we let it take over our lives. Everything in moderation …
Watch the video, listen to the words and let them resonate… reflect…
Let me know what you think …
