I seem to have a challenge with finding balance. I want to keep 'in the know'. I want to be aware of what's happening around me and in the world. I have lately felt like it is a little overwhelming to know all that information. I enjoy Fox News, but lately there has just been too much going on for me.
I was on a kick of watching HGTV for a while. That took my mind off the negative news, but then I watched so much fixing up that I was a little frustrated because I couldn't run out and fix up my house and apartment. See I need moderation.
I now sit here in the quiet without my television on. The last story was on human trafficing and that was the final straw. I am just going to look at blogs, read my Bible and chill out. I don't need to know all the crazy stuff going on in this world. The quiet gives me peace and I can pray more and think on good things.
