Iphones are great
Modern technological advances are astounding and incredibly beneficial
They’ve become the axis around which culture revolves
We are so rooted in the progress we’re making
We’re like a tree growing into the ground
We marvel at the screens up against our ignorant faces
But do we look up to see the amazing things around us?
When was the last time you looked at the sky and took in its beauty?
It’s a bit breathtaking…
We’ve let one beautiful thing distract us from everything else
Would you rather watch a show or talk to your family?
Take the time to support them
And they’ll be there for you when Dean Winchester isn’t present to slay your monsters
Looking up is hard though!
It takes effort!
It’s not productive!
It doesn’t entertain my mind for more than a split second before my 21st century brain has to find something else!
…Do you realize how old the world is?
Do you realize that wifi had its beginnings in 1991?
It has been around for a whopping total of 26 years
Your attention span is pathetic
So is your life
And your perception of, well, everything
Basically you’re an idiot
He’s an idiot
I’m an idiot
Everyone is an idiot!

I was hiking the other day
It was beautiful
At least I assume it was
I was too busy not tripping over tree roots to notice the nature around me
I took one glance up, got pissed at myself for not absorbing the beauty around me,
And kept walking with my head down
The point is
Stop moving, traveling, getting caught up in your life
And just look around
Take in the simple blessings surrounding you
Stare at the sky
One has to become disenchanted with obsessively reaching the next thing to appreciate how amazing the simple things are
You’re the only thing that makes life complicated
Stop looking down on everything else
It takes a lot of humility to accept that some things in the world are bigger than you
