Truth - Watching Too Much

It was the best of times of times, it was the worst of times.  We spend much of our time watching life instead of living life.  Our living is consumed by watching.

We watch television.  The news, shows, sports, events, movies, sitcoms, commercials.  During the Super Bowl half the population talks about the commercials.  Are you kidding me?  Who cares.  I checked in on Google Plus, Twitter, and Facebook and all the trends were about the commercials...not the game.  Yes some were very good I agree...but so what?

So in a world where we watch, where we read, where we attend events of others doing something...we end up just watching.  Is that who you are supposed to be, just a watcher?  Is that the human condition to just watch moments instead of making your own?  Not only do we end up watching, we end up discussing what we watch.  Some of us become crazy about what we watch and record it.  We stop what we are doing to watch.  We buy things attached to watching.  We quote it.  We imprint it on our brains.

I think this is a problem. I've watched every episode of Cheers several times in my life.  I can't get that time back.  At the time I thought the novelty of it was cool.  Looking back, what a waste of time.  Nothing gained from that.  Nothing.  Venturing didn't help.  It was dumb.

Think about what you watch, and how you can live your life to live instead of watch.  Is it even possible or are you too entrenched in it all?
