You Can't Look Around If You Only Look Down

Stumbled across this awesome Thai ad a while ago, on Story of Bing, a blog that I stalk. Go check it out! It's written by Bing, a Singaporean lady who currently lives in Africa with her husband who is posted there. Her blog is full of observations on life and her surroundings, and super yummy-looking recipes.. all with really gorgeous pictures!
Ok, back to the ad.

I think that most, if not all of us can relate to it in some way or another. I mean, which of us hasn't been guilty, at least once, of being too wrapped up in our technological worlds to connect and appreciate what is physically present around us? We may miss the simplest (and yet most beautiful) moments - moments that define what living truly is.

 So, yeah. Tell your friends on eBuddy that you'll 'brb', or better yet, that you 'gtg'. Log out of facebook for a while, those notifications will still be there when you sign back in! You can't tweet about what's going on, if you don't look up from your phone long enough to SEE what's going on.

As the title of the ad says: Disconnect, to Connect.

Super powerful message. I feel like dumping my phone somewhere, and I would but I know that I would regret that decision about 2 seconds later!
