We talk all the time about doing what matters most, and we realize that will look different for all of us. But what isn’t different is the human limitations that we all have. Many of us strive to be present in all the places + together with all our people while doting a gigantic Buddy the Elf smile during the Christmas season, and it’s impossible. Our inability to do it all and be it all seems to bother us even more during the very season we should be most at peace. You’ll never hear us success shame or tell you that you have to choose between your calling at work and your calling at home if God has called you to both, but we will remind you of your limits because sometimes, we need to acknowledge them before we can honor them. And of all the things to give up, social media should probably be the easiest. So during this season of Advent, that’s why we suggest you start there.
Your family loves you no matter what, but they will enjoy you most when you have something left for them at the end of the day.
So, if you need the break, please take it. More importantly, if God is asking you take the break, obey Him. He will blow you away with His faithfulness. And that’s a promise.
Merry Christmas from the SWHW team! We love you!
