There’s a great quote from the 80’s classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off that has become more relevant to me as I grow older:
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”
While we live in a increasingly digital world this quote really rings true. I was thinking about that quote and ran across this photo the other day and it really put things into perspective for me.
While we’re all out there snapping, Instagramming, Twittering and Facebooking this photo right here reminds me that while we’re doing all of those things we’re missing out on something – life. It may sound funny coming from a guy that makes a living in the digital world but I’d like to remind you from time to time it’s OK to stop creating content and capturing the next photo for your blog and just live life.
(Sadly, I have no idea who took this photo to give credit to. If you know please drop me a line so I can credit appropriately)
