Realizing how much I go on my phone and/or rely on my phone is crazy. Even at my family events, the majority of them spend a long amount of time on their phones rather than cherishing the time together. We don't get to see each other all the time and then when we do, it feels like we are drifting apart. No longer do we play games at family events or have long deep conversations with each other. We are too focused on what we see posted on facebook or that roasting tweet. It's just that my family used to be all fun talk and laughter, but it has slowly decreased. We, now take these moments for granted. I try to make the most of these moments I have with my family because you never know what is going to happen. I want to be present with the people I care about. Sometimes I miss the way it used to be when technology wasn't a huge effect of our lives. I encourage you to be present with the people around you. BE where you are.
