As you may or may not know, yesterday was Earth Day, better known as my favorite holiday. While I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, I saw dozens, maybe even hundreds, of nature pictures. As happy as that made me, it also made me realize I was on my butt inside enjoying pictures of the earth while I could be out there experiencing it's beauty first-hand.
With the growing popularity of social media, I've seen people try to capture every moment to share later on Twitter or Instagram rather than live in the actual moment. With our hands constantly glued to our phones and refreshing our feed, we keep up on everyone else's adventure rather than going out and living our own. I'm guilty of this, as I know a lot of you reading this are, too.
With that in mind I decided I'm going to change my own ways and set out to look up from my phone screen and see what's going on in the world. Whether I'll witness a little girl dance around with the confidence of a Queen, or the beauty of the sun reflecting off of freshly rained on windows, I know it'll be better than the artificial feed fed to me through the four inch LED screen that my life seems to revolve around.
My blog is all about savoring the blissful bits of the day and keeping the little moments close to your heart. I know for a fact you would see more amazing things throughout your day if you put your phone down and experienced the world through your natural lenses: your eyes. (#nofilter)
