It’s quite windy out there, meaning outside right now, and it is also quite windy in my heart. There’s a storm brewing, or maybe it has already arrived. I am always in constant change, and I know this about myself. It doesn’t allow for much consistency or much stability of emotions. I have done some counseling, but found it a waste because I always get the weird counselors and who has time to search for the right counselor. So, I trust God to be my counselor as weird as that might sound, it works for me right now. It does mean though that I haven’t quite learned the art of controlling my emotions, but I am constantly seeking His wisdom and just plain pursuing His heart for me and my family.
I never want to give the impression I have everything put together and that I live this perfect life. I think blogs and facebook, social media in general, allow you to present the picture you want to present to everyone. For awhile, I wasn’t taking that into account and all of my posts and status updates were me complaining. Suddenly, I realized that the only thing I was presenting was the negative, and I have had to work really hard to not do that anymore. I think a little complaining is okay, but I just was’t presenting who I really am. I am not JUST a bunch of complaining. Really, I’m not. I love my kids. I love my husband. I love my God. That’s it. That’s the main focus of my life.
What image are you presenting to the world around you? Are you accurately representing yourself?
