My Sunday Reflections series is about sharing ideas, thoughts and insights on self-care, relationships, chronic illnesses, growing older, self-improvement, inspiration, or anything else that I feel is useful information and might be of benefit to someone.
I hesitated about sharing this post for over a week, but I finally decided it was a great message that needed to be shared. I can relate to both Courtney the original writer and to Sarah’s post, the blogger I follow. Sarah’s thoughts really struck home with me and Courtney has some great suggestions!
In this day and age, I think we all go through some periods of distractions at one time or another. Maybe even on a daily basis. Especially at this time of year, with all of the holiday decorating and gatherings, and our minds wandering off in a hundred different directions.
We need to hold near and dear, those that we love and share our homes.
Take the time to be “in the moment” with your loved ones. Take the time to enjoy the holidays yourself. Your time and attention are priceless gifts that don’t cost anything.
Are You Distracted and Distant or Making Your Home a Haven?
From Sarah :
This post was written 9 years ago. The first year Courtney and Women Living Well/Good Morning Girls did Making Your Home A Haven. I was with them then. The title asks us a really great question.
Are we distracted and distant or are we really making our home a haven?
I’d have to admit, I am definitely distracted and distant much of the time.
I always try to get off the computer when Danny walks through the room. I stop and wait. I look at him. Yet, I don’t always talk. I am so use to Danny not wanting to talk that I have slowly stopped asking him to much of the time. Then, when he finally does talk, I am not always full present. It’s been my way of coping.
Shutting down though is never good.
We all may need a slight break. A bit of quiet in our day.
I have been too quiet. It beats sounding bitter.
I know this has an effect on how it feels when Danny comes home . . .
