How many hours per day do you spend consuming other people’s beliefs, ideals, opinions?
One hour per day?
I used to fall into the scroll hole until I woke and realized what I was pouring into my brain each day.
Someone’s rant about the government.
Another person’s love of cats.
And someone else’s opinion on schooling.
Every single day.
Now, I choose to limit my time going down the hole. My goal is thirty minutes per day of consumption.
I choose to be conscious of the opinions I am absent-mindedly fillings my heads with.
To be more conscious, at the beginning of 2019, I moved the apps around on my phone as well as unfriended/unfollowed many people. These two things worked for me.
Now, I am conscious and making space in my day to listen to the ideas swirling in my own head, to hear what’s stirring in my soul and to see where I want to go.
It has been a prolific start to 2019 as I have listened within and muted the outside noise. I encourage each of you to listen within, to the genius inside of you. We all have it. We are all one part of a great human race. Imagine if we all stopped and listened within.
But first we need to mute the noise.
Blessings as you begin this new year. 2019!
One thought on “Be Listening Within (mute the noise)”
This is so true Joanna. I find so much running around in my head its like a bowl of spagetti! I don’t know which thought to follow next. I’m trying very hard to clean out the old attic. Lol It’s almost like becoming a minimalist. I’ve cleaned out and sorted and thrown away, until my time is calmer, more of me and the busyness I really love. I have to honestly say it sounds a little selfish, but sometimes our brains are just a little too full of clutter. Love ya!
