The good old days.

Sitting in the balcony, me and my sister were discussing how fast the things have changed..

The time where we used to dance in the first rain shower, instead of updating  status on our social media about weather. 

Where we used to roam carefree without caring about our looks. 

Where going out to a fancy restaurant would mean spending some quality time with your parents, instead of showing off by clicking pictures or posting checkins. 

Where relationships are rated by the social media posts and heartbreaks take place on a phone call instead of having a real face to face conversation. 

When will we realize that our lives are incomparable to the people we stalk on Instagram?

Where are those good old days where we used to value our real life more than our virtual life?  

Where we find time for ourselves…

I am sure whenever we realize that life is beyond all these virtual things we will have a grateful attitude towards our life and surroundings

    Information that is helpful can roll and move quickly to inspire many many people …

    1. I agree that Internet has its own benefits. But we people really need to look beyond the virtual world and enjoy our surroundings instead of being constantly updating minute details online. We need to live the moment..

  2. Technology has taken over, you have to send a friend request to your roommate to speak with them, schedule a zoom meeting with your parents and use emojis to express your feelings now.😁 ( Hence the emoji). Tech is good for some things but it has spoiled society now.
