I just wish we could slow down…
I love and appreciate technology, especially the internet. I spend hours a day on social media because I love connecting with people on that platform. I love that I get breaking news as it happens and don't have to wait for the 7 o'clock news or the story to be printed in the morning paper. However, I miss the days when life was slower. I miss the days when journalists researched the news before broadcasting it to the world. I miss the days when an artist released an album and we all went to the shop to buy it, took it home, listened to it….I mean really listened to it.
Today we can't even wait for the album to be released. We download the leaked version and decide whether it's a great album or not in 30 minutes. When an event occurs every blogger and news site wants to be the first to break the story. No one wants to wait to get all the facts first. We all want to be the first to tweet about something or post about it on Facebook of post a pic on Instagram. We read the headline and not the story and then proceed to come to a conclusion or at least formulate an opinion.
I wish we could all just…slow down. I wish we could all take time to enjoy life more instead of racing to be number one. I wish we could take time to really experience things. I wish more of us could have the patience to read a book instead of just blogs. I wish we could wait for the album release date, buy the album, and really enjoy the music before drawing an opinion. I wish we could be at a concert and experience the concert instead of taking videos to post on Instagram. I wish we could take more walks or bike rides. I wish we look around us and enjoy the scenery instead of having our heads down to the phone. I wish we could wait for all the facts before coming to a conclusion. I wish we could listen for the sake of listening instead of answering.
I just wish we could slow down...
I think a lot. I question a lot. This is my journey to finding the answers and also sharing with you my thoughts on life as i see it...
