I am a person who loves to document things. Sometimes when we go out I am always taking a picture of something. I think it’s mainly because when I was a child we didn’t really take pictures. There are some moments I would love to have pictures of but we don’t have those pictures. But at the same time not having those pictures allowed me to just enjoy the moments. So while I wish I had pictures I enjoy the memories.
Now I am trying to catch more moments and create memories but I am beginning to realize that now I might want to put the camera down sometimes. Cause at times you can get engrossed in taking pictures and just social media all together you forget to enjoy the things that you are actually doing. This really became obvious when one day a few weekends ago The Husband said that sometimes he would love to go out and not see anything posted about it on social media. I didn’t think his request was too much to ask. So last week when we went out I actually didn’t post anything on social media about what we did until afterwards but I had no picture. We went to a pizza place that we had never been to before with our daughter and we just sat and talked. I really enjoyed just hanging out. I didn’t worry about taking pictures of the pizza or making sure it was perfectly lit or anything. We just ate the pizza and enjoyed it. I almost forgot what it was like to just enjoy time with your family I don’t think it’s too much to ask to occasionally put the phones down.
So I am going to try to make an effort to just enjoy the moments more often than I am to catch the best picture to post on social media. I won’t not ever post but I think that I could find a happy medium between the two. I don’t have to live life through my phone.
