  • LOOK UP – This video will inspire you to be more present and alive in the lives of those you most love

Yesterday was Mother’s Day.  I loved spending the day with my kids and family but I could not help but notice how we all spent a part of the day responding to other’s people’s well-wishing texts, Instagrams and Facebook posts.  I know I checked every media site to see if my kids posted any “spending Mother’s Day with my amazing Mom” posts.  They didn’t.  I wish a little bit that they would have, but then I realized that this is truly an utter stupidity because I know in my heart that they love me anyway.  I don’t need to post it for the world to see to make our bond feel any stronger. Most importantly, I know better than to give in to the “social media comparison stress.”  My kids don’t love me more if they post a collage of all our pictures together and write long, heartfelt essay describing all the ways they love their mother.  Don’t get me wrong, these expressions of love are beautiful to read, but it is not a requirement, even if everyone seems to be doing it.  The truth is, I would  rather feel their everyday love and have spent the day with them making a real memory, especially after watching this video.  This video changed my perspective and made me realize how important it is to be present in the moment, especially when we are in the company of those we most love.  I hope this video affects you the way it positively affected me and I hope that you all start “looking up” and living life in the present more often.

Enjoy!
