As you may have noticed, I skipped last week. I could not, in all honesty, say that I read anything that I wanted to pass on. Not because there wasn’t material published, but simply because I was lazy, and unengaged in the world wide web. Family visited, I checked out on everything but them, and don’t even feel bad about it…mostly.
But I am back this week, with some good stuff I want to bring to your attention. So here goes…
Addie posted over on Deeper Story this week about why she and her husband watch Game of Thrones on HBO. The article is How HBO is Teaching Me Something New About Jesus. While I don’t watch Game of Thrones, nor do I endorse you doing so necessarily, it is a good post about how to interpret life outside of our “christian bubble” we sometimes get so wrapped up in, and also wrap our own kids up in without even realizing it sometimes.
Shauna posted More Love, Less Hustle this last week! I am pretty open about my struggle to find balance. Balance between the drive of productivity and success, and having margin in my life just to enjoy and reflect that path that God has me on. I sometimes feel a little mentally troubled because of my constant bounce back and forth between the two. I feel it’s always a struggle, so sometimes, I stay in one of those places a little longer than I should. Anyway, I’m sure I’ll be writing about my experience soon, but for now, suffice it to say that I always like reading about other people having those same issues. It reminds me that I’m not the only one with those issues, and that “normal” is ok, just lean into it, be sensitive to what God is doing, and love it.
Over at The Happiness Project, Gretchen gives us a peak at her interview with Nir Eyal on the subject of habits. It’s a fascinating interview that serves as a reminder for me. I, and most of us, have triggers that help us get off track, but we can also have triggers that help us get on-track, so to speak.
Take a read at these and post some thoughts, I would love to hear how these affected you!
