“The more you document your own life, the more you check in, you tweet, the more you post photos of what you did last night, the more you do all of this stuff, or even in my case, the more you listen for little lines of dialogue that can make their way into stories, the more you photograph moments, in a way, the more you start to step out of those moments, and if you do that too much, you become a spectator to your own life.”
"This is a great reminder to us all, isn’t it? I understand that some of this “spectating” has its own value. It’s cool to look back and see what you’ve done in the past. It’s a good thing. However, if there was ever going to be a time in technological history that we would be at risk of faulting at over spectating our own lives, it would be now. Do you think we do this spiritually, too? When was the last time you thought about scripture and just enjoyed it between you and God without dropping it on social networks?"

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."~ Harvey Mackay
"I believe everything happens for a reason! People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so that you will eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes, good things fall apart, so better things can fall together" ~ Marilyn Monroe
I have been happy, tho' in a dream. I have been happy- and I love the theme: Dreams! in their vivid coloring of life, As in that fleeting, shadowy, misty strife Of semblance with reality, which brings - To the delirious eye, more lovely things. Of Paradise and Love- and all our own! Than young Hope in his sunniest hour hath known. - Edgar Allan Poe
