Look away from your gadgets and see the splendour the world has for us!

When we focus too much on the screen and too little on what’s happening around us, we might miss out on some of life’s most beautiful moments. 

This spoken word was written, performed & directed by Gary Turk. He’s encouraging all of us to look up from technology and take advantage of our “finite days.”

Why would we want to do this, though, when technology is so entertaining? Because when we are looking down, we miss what happens directly in front of us, in real life.  We could miss a potential wife, husband, friend, adventure, or experience. It could keep us from witnessing a miracle, from preventing a catastrophe, from taking the right life turn.

Isn’t technology simply a means to capture and perpetuate what happens in real life?  When our focus shifts away from real life, we miss out.

So, look up. Experience the world. And start thriving in the life you were meant to live!
