Living for Today!

There is just so much Chaos in the world today!

We are constantly trying to keep up with everyone and everything    

We try so hard to keep up with those around us

We rush from this place to that place 

We want what everyone else has ....

We are so caught up in trying to gain more, when we already have more than enough. Yet, day after day we strive to be better! Why, is that? As women, why can't we just Be! We should be living in the moment. Yet, we're thinking about next month...

When our children are trying to talk to us, we're nodding as we fold laundry and thinking about what to make for dinner! When our spouse wants to spend time with us, our response is when I'm finished with the dishes. Others days, we just wish we could get to those books that have been sitting on the shelves for years. But what if....we get behind on chores? Our souls deeply long to just sit down and engage in these relationships. However, The world says otherwise.

Do you ever feel like everything is pulling you in 100 different directions? 

The truth is, there will always be things pulling for our attention. The world will tell you to try harder every single day! But, what if you stopped what you were doing when your child started speaking and gave your full attention? What if, you made it a point to show your spouse how important they were and engaged in a deep conversation. What actually sat down and enjoyed a good book?

I think if you asked yourself, what matters the most today....  

Your answer wouldn't line up with your actions! I would like to encourage you to start living each day simply and focus on what truly matters to you. The rest will always be there....

Let's live for Today!
