Virtual addictions. Seriously could someone enlighten me.

Technology once again got in the way of me having fun. Crowed up the dance floor with people standing there on Facebook in the middle of a raging dance floor with sour puss looks on their faces while I was trying to get my dance on. Not once but many times last night. IF you would rather be on facebook than get off the dance floor. I just don’t understand. Maybe I am just getting old but I would really like to live life while I am here. Don’t get me wrong i pick up my phone while I am waiting in line or bored too. When there is life going on around me I choose not to view it virtually through this narrow scope of a view finder to post about what was happening instead of connecting authentically.There is so much more to life than this framed moment in time.  I spend time with my kids and not spend time posting about spending time with my kids. All around me I see people engaged in their phones instead of enjoying life. People at dinner and half of them are on the phone. Not only are they missing out on authentic connections but they are getting in the way of everyone who is trying to really live.  I like multitasking like anyone but if you eating with a group of people  or your up  in line at the grocery store and you have to pick up your phone for anything but an emergency or your kid you have a problem. IF you are on a dance floor that is raging and you are on Facebook really? In a lecture hall that you are paying for your education and you are scrolling through your social media your wasting your resources. All’s I am saying is put down the phone and enjoy life while you are still living. Enjoy authentic connection while you still have it. Meet people while you can because that person who you missed engaging with could have been the one.  It is time to raise your vibration and interact with this world in a way that will make that possible. There is a time and a place for everything.

    1. I know even in my education expierience I have seen this evolution of people really tuning out instead of evolving. I remember in my first college I would walk down the halls and look people in the eye and say hi and we all knew eachother and it was great. Going to a Umass I would walk anywhere and everyone is pugged into their technology and never looks up I found myself to be so alone hardly making more than a few authentic connections
