"Finding peace among too many options"
Another great post from Brenda that reminds us that less is often more.
It seemed almost every night after washing the dinner dishes, I would feel unsettled and even a little depressed. I felt as if I hadn't accomplished what needed to be done even on busy days. I asked God for wisdom and one day it came to me... I was on option overload. There was too much around me that was calling for my attention.
I realized that no matter how many books I read, there were more waiting stacked in various places and on the Kindle. There were more TV programs than I could ever watch. There were DVDs stacked next to the DVD player and on quite a few shelves. Don't even get me started with Amazon Prime video or Netflix options.
I know, these are First World problems, right? Definitely... but that is where we live. Much like we can always hear the hum of some refrigerators and the furnace running on cold days, there is a hum of "watch me, read me, listen to me, eat me (especially if ice cream is in the freezer), pay attention to meeeeee"... all day long.
Well worth reading the entire thing
