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!
