Keeping it Real

If this post had a song, it would sound like Madonna's "Material Girl"...except the lyrics would go like this.

"For we are living in a digital world, and I'm a digital girl."

No secret, I'm a user and probably an abuser of social media: facebook, instagram and blogger. My addiction to social media is mostly because of the pictures. I love photographs. I love taking photographs, and I love looking at them. And, I like keeping up with people I don't get to see everyday.

That said, I know there are times when I need to just "step away" from the iPhone. Not every moment has to be captured and posted. Sometimes it's okay for them just to live in my memory.

After watching this video I've decided I am going to try and focus more on making memories than capturing moments. Because let's be honest, someday the technology is going to change, and the platforms we use today are going to be obsolete. That means the only memories will live on forever is in your mind and in your heart. I'd hate to miss something really good because I was trying to post it and give it a hash tag.

Are you guilty too?
