Society is filled with the flooding of information which can often become a sensation overload. The fight for the click is increasingly prevalent to the point of becoming an addiction. With so much information literally at our fingertips, the tool we use to make our life easier, can often add another burden and a distraction in our already full lives.
When our focus is narrowed to feeding the addiction of finding what will get us the most clicks, our purpose and intent become distorted. What once started as a way of sharing information, and leisurely enjoying reading about what others have shared, has now become a profitable business for big tech and individuals striving to become the next influencer.
When was the last time, we put down our phones, and stepped into nature to see beauty that is right before us... if we take time to view what nature has to share? When is the last time, we remained silent and listened, rather than jump in and join the shouting in the comments? When was the last time we could scroll through what use to be filled with beautiful pictures of this world, instead of political memes and angry voices?
Today, let's reflect upon the beauty that surrounds us. Let's ponder on what we can do to spend more time seeking the beauty in life, rather than allowing ourselves to be flooded with information about all the horrible acts and angry voices which flood our timelines. Let us determine, if we can be a refuge from the storm.
