Nothing better than a slow morning! I cannot believe I am writing it with so much joy and excitement. I was addicted to rush, busyness and efficency and a “slow morning” was not an option in my mind but today I can truly say that I love my slow in solitude mornings!
That is why everyday a Holiday has changed my life forever it has become a daily practice, a lifestyle that has allowed me to enjoy my days and live one day at a time. Is it easy? NO!!! But I am committed to make it a DAILY PRACTICE and that is exactly what I want to share with you.
We are surrounded by information, anything we want to know is literally at the palm of our hands but let’s be honest if we measure the amount of information vs. what we put into practice, we can all agree in one reality: We lack Action! I have been meditating about this and Mathew 7:24 came to my mind “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice”
What are you putting to practice?
The reality is that the tie between information and action has been severed. Neil Postman said: “Information is now a commodity that can be bought and sold, or used as a form of entertainment, or worn like a garment to enhance one’s status. It comes indiscriminately, directed at no one in particular, disconnected from usefulness; we are glutted with information, drowning in information, have no control over it, don’t know what to do with it.”
I have learned, that God’s mercies are renewed every morning which means that everyday we can start over. Less information more practice, Less talking and more doing, less sharing on social media and more talking to God.
Start small. (I’ll share some of mine but I encourage you to make your own list)
- Look up, look at, look in.
- Listen, absorb, ask questions.
- Pay attention, take time to see and appreciate the people in front of you.
- Choose to be present, breath in and out, appreciate what is around you.
- Forgive, accept and dream, dream big.
Despite everything that is going on around us, we can choose what we practice and those practices will influence our lives in a dramatic way!
Today is a beautiful opportunity to start over, to start re-building our daily practices and not allow the amount of information paralyzed and accustomed us to live by default. What have you been reading or learning lately?
Put it into practice! Today is a good day as any to begin again.
