Driving home from a beautiful walk, being able to feel the fresh air hit your face like when you open that oven door, whilst listening the birds sing. It’s a moment i want to cherish for the rest of my life, maybe not in a physical way. Sometime’s it’s the mind, the place where we can store the happiest of memories.
I’ll be truthful when i say i am constantly glued to my phone, whether its uploading an Instagram, a Snapchat story or even just to gaze at basically nothing, that phone will always be by my side. It’s like i can’t live a moment without sharing it with others. I actually prefer telling others the moment, it’s more of a story telling experience – Okay i’d admit the odd photo would be nice to ‘really’ show the picture but often the description is just fine, if not better as it let your imagination go wild.
I always remember going to Austria, we got to the top of the mountain, the brightest sky you could ever imagine greeted us along with the odd fluffy cloud. The air fresh, crisp. Watching the cable cars flying through the air, into the mist where they would disappear which felt like forever. The most wonderful sight eh? After taking a moment to see all it’s beauty, i turned around to see that everyone was on their phone’s, camera’s snap chatting, Instagraming, Facebooking you name it, every single person was missing out vital minutes of seeing it all physically. Okay i was also taking photos i admit, but i waited to truly share my experience instead of missing it!
I’ve learned a lot. To soak in the moment, of course take photos, so you can relive the experience when you get home but take the time to digest what’s happening, every little thing.
