Technology is exhausting. I don't know about you, but I catch myself spending way too much time on my electronic devices. Sometimes I even find that I am missing out on the simple things around me, because my head is glued to my silly cell phone or computer. I realized that my life shouldn't be defined by others & what they are wearing, eating or where they are traveling. I should be creating my own happiness & finding my own joy in the simple things around me. 

Over the last couple weeks, I have really tried to limit how much time I am spending in social media & on my computer. I have been looking up more often & with that I noticed that Tinsley started hanging out in her bed like she did when we first got her (makes my heart melt!). My flowers actually started to thrive because I spent more time watering them. Spending time in the Word has become more enjoyable & less of a chore. I have enjoyed more memorable conversations with my other half Nick & I have found some bright clothes in my closet to keep my mood on the up & up!


Life is so much better when you are looking up from your cell phone & noticing all the beautiful things around you. smartwater recently started a campaign called "look up" & they have challenged their fans to start spending more time looking up & less time with their heads in technology. Be sure to join in the fun by following @smartwater on instagram & share your findings from "looking up" & enjoying life with the hashtag #lookupsweetstakes!
