Just a Moment...

Sometimes I just need a moment. Of quiet.

Of stillness.

Of perspective.

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.
