“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.” ~Cynthia Ozick.
About a month back I was having a lunch with my childhood friend, we happened to meet after a long time. A strange thing happened , which challenged my understanding of how present we are to the person in front of us . While we were together,we often looked at our cell phone while speaking to each other .I asked him once, what are you doing, he said- updating my social media status. After some time I was fiddling with my phone, so he asked what are you upto? I replied -updating my social media status. There was this long pause, because we just realised what stupidity we were unconsciously doing. There we were meeting after such a longtime and rather than giving complete attention to the person in front of us, “we were giving importance to a machine, that sometimes has total control on us”.
May be this has happened with you too. So lets challenge ourselves to give our undivided attention to a person in front of us. Let your eagerness to find out how many likes and comments you have got on your latest updated photo and status on social media wait,wait wait.
Try it for a day.
Wish you all the best. Your comments are appreciated.
Lets continue to inspire lives.
