Look Up From Your Phone

Hi all! I don’t normally post on Wednesdays, but I wanted to get my post out so that it wouldn’t go live on Thanksgiving Day (thankful for all of you, family, friends, health –  and that’s what matters)!

I’m going to dive into a different topic here today, one that isn’t necessarily directly correlated to personal finance. Yet, I felt a bit inspired. I believe this is an incredibly pertinent topic, especially during the holidays when we are surrounded by the ones we care about, the people we value.

I think every once in awhile we can all use this nudge, this reminder. I feel an ache when I fall guilty to this considering technology is so prevalent in life today. I would like to inspire at least a few of you to take the time and…look up from your phone.


Look up from your phone.

The beautiful world, your life, encompasses you.

Your friend is across that sturdy mahogany table hoping that you will look into their eyes and give them a sense of hope to support them.

When you visit a foreign place take it in, because those memories will fulfill you where instagram pictures lack.

Or you won’t notice the silent tear that’s rolling down your daughter’s cheek.

This may be one of the memories you have left to hold on to as a legacy of a loved one.

Look up from your phone.

There are incredible individuals making subtle or overt choices to make the world a better place.

Look up from your phone.

Because you’ll see the reflection of your amazing self as a whole, and not in comparison to anyone else.


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Take some time to look up from your phone & feel gratitude for everything around you.
