Sing at the Top of Your Voice

This song hit me like a ton of bricks the first time I heard it on Fallon the other night. It is so simple but so freakin' powerful. I think a lot of people from my generation feel this way. The world has so embraced technology and 'social' networking that I think many of us feel like we are missing out on what it really means to be alive.

Life isn't about comments and likes, it is about loving fearlessly, feeling sand in our toes, looking at a million stars in the night sky, letting music bring us to tears, tasting great coffee, starting a family, getting lost, hearing the breeze blow through the mountains...and so much more. We only have a few years here on earth, do we really want to spend half of it staring at screens? 

Social networking and technology has amazing potential to be a great thing, but we have to find a balance. 

I suppose in some ways that is what this blog is about. It is Courtney's and my little attempt at getting out and trying to really experience life, and we hope it encourages you to do the same.

It doesn't take much, and the first step is simply "Put Your Phone Down". 

“We should run though the forest, We should swim in the sea
We should laugh, we should cry, we should love, we should dream
We should stare at the stars and not just at screens
You should hear what I’m saying and know what it means

To sing, sing at the top at your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
And feel, feel like you still have a choice
When we all light up we can scare away the dark”
— Passenger
