Why I Deleted Snapchat and Why You Should Too

I was at a bar waiting for a friend to join, so naturally I opened up Snapchat to kill a few minutes.

And suddenly, I had an epiphany.

I give absolutely zero shits about your dog, how pretty your overpriced drink looks, that you’re about to “rage with your bitches” or that you just “worked-out” for an hour.

And guess what? You shouldn’t either.

Think about all the moments you missed because you weren’t fully present. Did you really watch that concert and feel the music, or were you too busy focusing on snapping the perfect part of a song? Were you really having fun at that bar, or were you too preoccupied with making sure people knew you go to bars? I am so guilty of this, we all are.

I think we should all spend a little more time having fun, and less time making sure other people know we’re having fun. More time savoring our food, and less time making sure other people know how good it looked.

We need more time living in the moment, and less time watching it happen through a screen.

That’s my advice, take it or leave it.
