This video is poignant. I spend a lot of my day battling my phone for time with friends, family, and co-workers. It’s crazy to think that our generation has gotten to this point. Sort of makes me wonder what’s next.
A couple of weeks ago, our team leader Luke had us write a letter to someone we’re thankful for and just tell them specifically why we’re thankful for them. It was nothing more than an exercise to re-focus our attention outwards, but it’s amazing the impact this had on the rest of my day/week/month. Thinking about other people always makes your problems shrink.
So, for the next 30 days, I’m going to write down 3 things I’m thankful for each day. I’ll be specific, and I won’t repeat. Depending on whether or not it’s appropriate to tweet, I will tweet it.
I think you should do this too. Then, let’s talk about how we feel after doing this for a while. Cool? Cool.
First time trying @martinsbbq redneck tacos and I gotta say, I’m proud to be a redneck right now. #delicious (at Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint)
Fun photo session with the @benlalisan yesterday. I’ll be amazed if he ever wants to have kids after dealing with these knuckleheads. #professional #poptpop (at The Woods)
This is Jon. He makes code behave. He also doesn’t allow silly numbers and letters to get in his way of GETTING IT DONE. #lampo (at The Dave Ramsey Show)
Whole Wheat Penne, Italian Sausage, Spinach. Happiness. #vscocam #food
Hum-made goods from the lady @sararosser. Delicious. #lucky #vscocam
Precious cargo. #vscocam
Just hanging out while everyone puts on their clothing. Clothing is strange. #dogsays #vscocam
Decided the dog had been good enough to get a ride in the truck to the dump. I think she likes it. #vscocam (at Potts Grocery)
Breakfast in box. Thanks @ikea
2.76 lbs was not my target amount @wholefoodsmarket, but I guess I’ll have to eat them all. #sacrifice #vscocam
What are you looking at, human? #vscocam
