Ears that hear and eyes that see— the Lord has made them both.
Proverbs 20:12 NIV
According to google bubbles defination: “used to refer to a good or fortunate situation that is isolated from reality or unlikely to last.”
Bubbles don’t last but our Humanity will last. In the UK we have our little bubbles or not depending on what is said.
How we react now will either be regret later or praise?
Things that you can do to change for the future and to know that it is never too late to be committed to the people around you.
We might be in a bubble but we can have a phone call. Sometimes a phone call is all we need.
Things to do while it is getting darker and the clock has moved forward and you need that motivation to get out of bed, also knowing that anything outside the duvet is not welcome except a cup of coffee or tea.
Get a journal or book near you so that every morning you write one word that will set you for the day.
Always think of one thing in the morning that you will do, write it down and that gives you a purpose and meaning to get up. Set the day with one word – ‘healthy’ that could mean physical, mental or eating. But it will be a word to set your day and your focus. It could be ‘worship’ but setting our mind on that word means we focus on one thing.
Call someone: One of the things I have learned is not to wait for someone to call you but be the first to do it. If anything COVID19 has taught us this year it is not good to be isolated.
Listen: Listening is action and requires our full attention and also a very good skill to have and practice daily. “Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” James 1:19b
That also includes listening to what our body is saying to us, like you need to sleep now and we ignore it until we actually can’t function anymore and fall asleep on the couch. Yes that is bad and should be avoided, I know sometimes we think we cannot help it but we can intentionally switch off and have rest. My motto is “Work can replace me if I die, so why kill myself over it” give it your all and have a break as well and don’t fall for the trap that says I will take a break when I need to because five hours later that one email needs you more than the break and you are still sitting down. Take a break regularly especially if you are on the screen always.
But be careful “Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.” Proverbs 20:13 NIV
I have purposeful sets alarm for breaks because I was that person I will do and never did it, and this has helped me to focus and know that when it goes off it is breaks time. Me time to just relax, eat or just close my eyes.
Thanks so much for stopping by and below is a picture of my weekend of fun.
