Making a Life Shift
Do you spend a HUGE amount of time and energy cleaning, caring for, insuring, protecting, taking care of, or showing off your…. STUFF
As if it would last FOREVER? I have and so I am making a life shift and want to invite you on the journey.
I have struggled from time to time with putting so much energy and sometimes WORRY into these things. What has helped me be more present or to focus on what matters most is to understand and realize that you can’t take those things with you.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t enjoy them while you are here but its a small reminder to always keep perspective on the things that are most important.
Your relationship with God, yourself, your spouse, and your children.
It’s a LIFE SHIFT
Does the bathroom really need cleaned right NOW?
Does the living room need to be picked up 6 times in one day OR is a walk with the kids more important.
I know that one day a moment will come where we can look back at life and we will not be as interested in how many achievements we have at work or how many “toys” we were able to collect.
We will wonder if we spend enough time expressing our love, being with those we love, and how much we contributed to the world.
I think if we can get in this mindset NOW and not wait until we are older we will be able to prioritize our goals in life. We will worry less about when things break down or trying to keep the laundry pile washed, folded, and put away and we will focus more on seeding and nurturing the LOVE that is in the home rather than keeping up with the things that need to be done.
We will get the things done, but let’s not make our entire life about trying to keep everything perfect
