Finding my Vitamin Water:
The days definitely go by shorter with a phone in hand, yet so much shorter with the indulgence of scrolling up and down, trying to find that special vitamin to nourish my soul. Every day, I typically grab my smartphone and thumb it until I’m late for the real life I have yet to live. Making it out the door in a scuffle, I always have it dripping from my fingertips. I use it for so much, yet nothing at all. It’s as if I’m the life for the smartphone. I get lost in this mystical tool, the trance filling my body with its unnatural toxins, beaming at it with great hope and desire, I try extremely hard to not use it. As out in the world I feel the vitamins of happiness dancing all around. The addicting gulp of a smartphone, has caught lips and here I’ve been to drink. In trade for what? What am I losing with doing such?
The time spent, is time gone, each day has so very much to offer. We all live in the most splendid of times. Yet we all thrive to be someone grand. Our little phalanges sparking with wildfire to find that electrifying sip of what’s good for our soul. Time ticking away, we scroll to see someone, we scroll to laugh, connect, touch, become, only to click, and be left without it.
To me, these wonderful scrolls are found outside of the thumb flicking. Amongst our gorgeous world full of the most vibrant of excitements. It’s in the simplest of things, that you collect these vitamins. Me, In this picture, I’m soaking up long earned vitamins from off the beaten path. Happiness smeared across my bearded face. My heart balancing with warm, fuzzy, nourishment. A Hot Springs cuddles, has what a sore fingered scroll does not.
I’d take 31,536,000 seconds of fire breathing hot springs, over any thumb cramping scroll any day. Matter of fact, I’d play under the stars and not the eye blinding screen of a smartphone, I’d dive into the ocean, instead of diving into the emptiness we all pretend to enjoy. My chance without a smartphone would be spent living to nourish my life with the love of living healthy.
