Who to Listen to?

I had the podcast going,

I was on the IG scrollin’

and my head began to spin!!

I said aloud “gotta hush the noise”…

SWIPE SWIPE… I closed all the apps and turn Spotify to hymns on piano and went to journaling.

Braindump time.

It’s been a tough couple of months “driving around the curve” of homeschooling year two with three school-age children.

My family is dear to me. I care for myself enough, so I needed to maintain connection and understanding… of it all… parenting, wife-ing, mothering, home caring, etc…

When the tabs are opened: One group talked about topic A and the other topic B… who do I listen to? What should I lean towards?! I began to spiral when after that asking out loud… I shut up the noise.

Essential. Go back to this basic, friends. No more scrolling and listening to everything else but doing the inner-work...

I realized that I am ok. I am doing a good job. I realized that my goal and work is to love God with my heart, mind, soul and strength and to love my neighbor… begin with self… to shut up the noise. To do the inner work… to build the boundaries: no social media this week. To have fun and contemplate and meditate.

Thankful. I’m moved to thankful…I am thankful to have access to electricity, home, warmth, clothes, food, phone, etc…

**Friends, where do you move to when you begin to spiral? What are you tools and go-to’s?

Life can be full of hope and abundance; I am certain we can find it because the life we want and desire: Jesus came to give us life and we can have it abundantly! A little about me: I am a wife, first. Next, I am a mama to five children; my husband and I have four daughters and son! I love to connect and talk about things of God and look for beauty in life.
