Dear Pulled-In-Every-Direction Girl,
It’s completely okay to walk away from things that the world tells you will bring you happiness, and towards small, simple, and good things that others usually just walk past.
Never forget that the simple, small things in life are very often the best, and they feel so much better to your soul than the shiny, fancy, and ‘popular’ things.
If you’re overwhelmed by the ‘too-muchness’ pulling at you…by things and situations that are too shiny, too fancy, too false, too noisy, too demanding, too insistent, too chaotic…just too too much….
…maybe it’s time to choose something more simple…away from the crowds and malls and rushing and social media. What would it feel like to spend an evening beside a quiet fire with your beloveds…or reading a favorite book…or listening to music you love…a card game or baking or just conversation with no background noise…
Take some time to listen to what your heart is telling you about what might be overwhelming and over-stressing you, and consider choosing something better.
Remember, you get to choose. Choose what is best.
You are so very LOVED.
