Happy Monday my friends. It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of the month as well as the year. How many of you wonder, where did the time go? I am challenging myself to find ways to be grateful for the areas that cause me the most aggravation. It seems like a great challenge to enter into the Thanksgiving season, away to prepare my heart and my head.
One area I have shared here on my blog not to long ago was about my gadgets, to be more precise my cell phone. I have a love hate relationship with Celi, a little name I gave her when I decided I was going to put up a boundary on how much attention she would get. The reality is that my cell phone helps me stay connected to my family and friends but without some intentionality behind using it, it can quickly turn into a bad habit and has over time. The urge to look at her even when there is no need.
Has anything changed with Celi? Why of course not, she is the same cell phone I brought home a few years ago. What has changed is my heart, my attitude and knowledge that it is all about choice and perspective. I have a choice to either complain about or be thankful for what is an everyday part of my life. I have the choice to pick it up, answer and respond, no one is making me answer Celi.
Today I am grateful that I can honestly say I am feeling a little bit more freedom to participate in modern technology without it feeling like it has so much control over me. Today I can look at Celi without feeling like she is trying to run my life, thank God for modern technology and the self control not pick her up.
Happy Monday my blogging friends, hope you find reasons to be thankful as you all enter into the next season.
