Be Listening Within (mute the noise)

How many hours per day do you spend consuming other people’s beliefs, ideals, opinions?

Honestly?

One hour per day?

Four hours?

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.

Hours.

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!

😘 Joanna

  1. 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!
