"How You Spend Your Time, Is, In Fact, How You Spend Your Life."


KHQ.COM - This is a video that has gone viral, literally spreading all over the world. Since it was posted on April 25th, 2014 it has already been watched over 20 million times and that number continues to grow exponentially. "Look Up" is a good reminder to all of us to make real connections and form close relationships with those in our lives.

Can you relate to feeling alone despite having hundreds or even thousands of "friends" on Facebook? Do you take photos of the exciting things you do just so you can post them on social media so all of your "friends" can see and comment on your life? Having people comment and interact with our posts on social media does make us feel connected but that "connection" can only goes so far.

As a society we continue to spend more and more time using electronic devices and less time with the people in our lives. Are we becoming a society of individuals more concerned with ourselves than we are about others in our lives? Have you ever heard the phrase, "how you spend your time, is, in fact, how you spend your life?" This video will make you check your priorities and force you to ask yourself, "how do I spend my time?"

Here are some questions to ponder:

How do you spend your time?
How do you entertain your children and how do they spend their time?
Why does it make us feel so good when people interact with us on social media?
In your opinion, why do we post photos of ourselves and the events of our lives on social?
            Is it just for attention? Is it how we document our lives for our own personal use?
Do you feel lonely at times even though you have many friends on social media?
Do you feel that over the years, you have been spending more time using electronic devices and less time with friends and family?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'Look Up' is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.
