I'll admit that I get distracted sometimes. I also admit that I'm no fan of AT&T but this video hits the nail on the head.

Being more aware when we are driving, walking,or simply going about life is a small price if it saves someone else or ourselves from life changing events. I ask you to watch this video. After watching it I have a challenge. I challenge you to write about one area of your life that you will work on being more aware of your surroundings. This is a challenge to share 3 things. 1. Personal experiences involving a lack of attention. 2. What area you will work on being less distracted. 3. How this challenge made you change your perspective. Now it is your turn. Share your story with me.
