04 Oct Girl, Rest Up
Lately, I have been thinking a lot about the narrative that we’re seeing on social media, and media in general. For a long time, I feel that we’ve been bombarded with success stories of people who are crushing goals, thriving in their careers, managing 2 or 3 side-hustles all while keeping up with a regular exercise regime, a balanced eating plan and if that’s not intimidating enough, they’re doing it all WITH a baby on their hip.
In today’s episode, I discuss how easily we glorify being busy and the impact that social media has on us through defining success stories as ones that require juggling multiple jobs, side-hustles and all while effortlessly managing a family and keeping up with a regular exercise regime. I open up about my own season of being too busy and how it took me months to learn how to rest – rest… what does the Bible say about rest? I break down several verses that discuss rest and what God desires for us!
I’m a beauty-obsessed, soccer-loving, keto-eating, picture-taking, occasional-blogging, faith-inspired, mom of two. I enjoy baking fresh treats for my family, exploring our local city, and looking for new family-friendly places for our kids to enjoy. On the weekends, you’ll find me supporting Tottenham, while pretending to know what I am doing in the Fantasy League. I can be bribed with chocolate and will never admit to having too much makeup – although, I probably do.
