Really? Can’t Take the Time to Look Up?
I was standing outside getting some fresh air at my workplace yesterday and I happen to notice this young guy walking down the street. I started watching him because he had his head down the entire time looking at his phone as he was walking.
I looked at him as he walked past me and he never looked up. I watched him walk past birds chirping in the trees and I saw a squirrel run in front of him. He never looked up. He walked past a lady with a bunch of kids holding balloons. Once again he never looked up.
I couldn’t help but think how life is passing this guy right before his eyes and he doesn’t even know it is because he never even takes the time to look up and take it all in. To quote a classic movie:
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” — Ferris
