Do you get this message sometimes? "Live first, Blog later." Maybe it is all the busyness catching up with you or appointments to keep. Household chores, errands, cleaning, cooking, ... All the normal things usually taking up your time, before you ever get to put brush in hand, or needle in thread, or beads on a wire... and then to blog about it.
I manage to have a nearly tech-free Sunday each week. Well, I try to anyway. For me, it is necessary to give my eyes a rest and my brain a chance to focus on other things than whatever is on the computer screen.
I try refreshing my soul and nourishing my heart towards the bigger picture. I am not always successful. If I turn the tv on and see chaos, corruption, and brutality- well, there goes any refreshment I was seeking.
Putting on music, or just listening to the birds sing, to get that quiet feeling, for me the house needs to be almost silent, that is nearly impossible to secure. Why did it used to be so easy to tune-out the static and buzz, even just a few years ago. The older I get, the quicker time passes, the more fragile life's balance has become front and center. There is no escaping, it was always like that, but becoming aware is a blessing, I suppose.
What about you? Do you tune out the chatter and buzz on any given day? Does it help you to focus or feel renewed and energized?
