Sometimes I just need a moment. Of quiet.
Sometimes I need to physically remove myself from the chaos that I allow to overtake my days.
My conviction is so easily swayed by day-to-day tasks. In an instant I become overwhelmed with emails, editing, paying bills, the blog, my website, social media. When my strongest relationship starts becoming my computer and my facebook friends, I know something is way off.
Instead of being present in my life, I am locked away in my room telling everyone online about the life that I am sort of living.
My friend told me last week that my instagram posts were making her jealous of my life. Whoa. Wait. Slow down. Stop. Aren't all our live a little more glamorous, I take that back, ALOT more glamorous online than they are in real life?
So this morning, I just need a moment. A moment to be alive in the life that God has given me today. A moment to remember that a life well lived is one that is lived in the present, away from my phone, away from tasks, away from emails and twitter.
God I need your help: to be right here, right now, fully present.
