Believing we can “do it all”, these days many of us hustle to the beat of a growing agenda. It’s unrealistic. The ‘Super People’ mentality overwhelms me. How about you? An array of media and images makes it seem possible, but it’s not. We often get caught up in a list of to-dos that simply draw our attention to the wrong things. Living thoughtfully and intentionally is tricky in our society.
Internet accountability takes time, energy, and diligence. Whether focused on self or others, we can’t be all-in with this until we get a clear view. Goals have to be realistic, and distractions limited. My family has entirely different needs, strengths, and weaknesses than yours…and vice verse. It’s time to focus, right where you are. It’s time for me, right where I am too.
Put on your boots, move the hair from your eyes, and look forward. You need a clear view to walk this road, — your road.

In every home, no matter what makeup, screen use is a daily consideration. It’s not a one-time fix. Updates, downloads, and evolving opportunities make this an ongoing necessity. From fake news to psychologically-driven coding, we peruse feeds daringly. Careful evaluation is in high demand.
Let’s unite, as individuals, families, and friends, to use opportunity well and implore goodness at every angle.~
