Are We Missing out on Life’s Experiences With Screens?

Long gone are the days where simplicity, enjoyment, living life at the fullest extent, enjoying and experiencing life without the use of smartphones, tablet screens and so many more. Are we really missing out on life’s experiences? Everything in life has its limitations, and in today’s society, people tend to go overboard with posting everything and anything they see. They are not really experiencing life, they are merely trying to capture anything and everything to share on social media networks, capture photos and share them on photo sharing sites.

Long gone are the days where people used to go to concerts and shows where everyone’s eyes and attention was looking at the stage without wanding lights coming from smartphones and tablets. Now with thousands of people capturing moments with their devices, these concerts and these special events in a person’s life is being video taped by the videographer’s of the concert, venue, and even when people witness a wedding or a reception.

I understand that you want to keep your personal memories too, of which taking pictures and everything and that is fine, but always wanding a device isn’t really the same as actually witnessing something happen before your eyes. Some moments are meant to be lived without screens, and where down the road you can remember it in your mind, and the good times to remind yourself and those who you lived those memories with.

I mean yes, special and beautiful events such as babies when they are born, their actions, and everything else need to be documented and everything, and there are moments in a person’s life that should be kept private and not for the world to see. Do not worry if you tell someone what your child did, or said that they will not believe you. They will. You do not need to always have proof or a video of something.

You really do not have to be in competition with the world and join a popularity contest because you want to be the first ones to capture something and put so many hashtags, and post something for the sake of posting something. It should never be that way.

People have the perception that if they do not capture, video, then post it on social media, the internet, tweet about it, that some people think that they are lying without providing proof that things actually did occur. I think that everything has its limits and not everything should be published online. Some things should be kept a secret, things should be kept private. Unfortunately, privacy is non-existent in today’s world because of these devices.

When people travel and explore the world, people will always have that force of habit to document every moment with screens, but the world has become smaller and people are more familiar with everything because people do research and look up videos and get more curious to find things out all the time, but the important thing to remember is that it is not fair to capture something, and then the soon to be traveler going to that place will see what it is all about and then that person or person’s will not be surprised anymore. It will all be spoiled for them

Some things are meant to be left unsaid, some things are meant to be explored without having people always telling others about something. People need to experience and form their own opinions.

I am all for and support smartphones, video, cameras, tablets and other devices, and I have them as well, but there is a limit and a lot of people now have crossed that limit. Screens have become addicting and it is so on the rise, that some people cannot go 5 minutes without looking at their phone. They bring it with them to bed, they check messages before bed, waking up, during meals, at work, during cooking meals, tending to their families, even while driving. Nobody should have their phones or other devices while driving. That is not only dangerous but very ridiculous.

In the past before all these devices came out, how do you think people passed their time? There was twice as much homework to do after school for the students, school times were longer, there was no use of devices, people had to make their own games and toys to physically play with, not one of those gaming consoles, people were outside playing, enjoying the true essence of life, more love, respect and family time, people didn’t have the luxury of instantly finding information, where they had to jet off to the library to find books, encyclopedia’s without the use of the internet or software.

With all that being said, people need to put their screens down and look up to enjoy life more, to witness things, to observe, and to capture the beauty of the world with your eyes. Not with screens. They shouldn’t be your eyes. Be more social, talk, take a pen and physically write without the use of keyboards and keypads.

Think about it. Experience life, put down your device and do it right now.

The Blogger In Me

Recently, I decided to make blogging one of my priorities everyday and I chose to set a goal to write each and everyday. I know that it is a challenging task to come up with different subjects and food recipes of mine, but I am up for the challenge. Most of my writings are all about positivity, changing the world and things we can do to make our days go by happier and better. I mean them all from the bottom of my heart. I think that if each and everyone of us spend some time and reflect on our lives and simply do things step by step to make our lives more happier, we can see a world of a difference.

For me, I love blogging and it makes me happy to see that I am making a difference in the world and touching so many peoples lives and changing them for the better. It is my priority in life to see others happy and doing well and being positive all in the while. Writing makes me a stronger person and this wonderful world of blogging is an incredible tool and we can all learn from each other on variety of subjects throughout the world. I love reading online about different things, different subjects and I remember a lot about my life and my experiences I have been through since I was a child. There is just so much that I want to share and so much that I want to spread around the world.

I strive to make deadlines for myself to post everyday, and I do not want to skip a day. If I skip a day, I don’t feel good the day after as I value and put my readers needs first. Without my readers, supporters and people whom have given me incredible awards, I wouldn’t be where I am today and without the energy given to me by these wonderful comments by my readers which are so important to me and you all have a place in my heart. Even if I do not know you. I have to write and write and write. My fingers just start typing and doesn’t want to stop sometimes. I sometimes get pains in my fingers from typing so much and I take breaks in between from the e-mails I get, to answering facebook inbox messages, and so on and so forth. The Internet, Blogging, Social networks simply take my mind off of many things and writing and spending time on the internet is very therapeutic for me. The Internet is not all that bad as so many think it is. It is just the way that you use it.

Writing is such a wonderful thing, and our blogging world, social networking and communication has changed so much that things circulate instantly and the internet is a huge encyclopedia and whatever we want to know or whoever we want to know about is just a couple of clicks away. Its incredible isn’t it? There are some people I live Vicariously through and there are so many inspiring people out there and all of you have an incredible gift to put words together and that is very difficult, but then again we all have talents and special gifts in life and we should never take them for granted. Now I call myself the blogger in me, because I have a closeness with words, stories that have happened in my life, so many things that are a perfect example on why I call myself that. We all have a title in this world, We just have to discover them. You will see how incredible the turnout will be.

So do not give up, and do what makes you happy and find something and never stop working at it.
