Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
1 Corinthians 13:12

Hey All ~

Last week my doctor and I chatted about those fuzzy moments when we can't quite find the right name or the exact word we're searching for.  

We laughed as he observed, 'too many files open.'  The guy hit the nail on the head.

I find this a mildly frustrating part of the aging process and am fortunate enough to have people in my life who'll give me an extra few seconds or gently toss the missing terminology my way.

There's a million and ten things that clog those brainwaves.

The irritating demands of technology.  Our numbing addiction to scrolling and clicking and skimming.  Far too many irons in the fire or fingers in every available pie.  Tasks that remain undone, must-dos that are ignored, real life piles that take up sweet white space in our homes. 

Stress from the news of the day.  Family drama or trauma.  Unfinished business that relentlessly sloshes around within.  And yes, the aging process.

I don't know what opened files intrude in your day to day life.  But if this is a challenge for you, I sure would like to hear what's taking up valuable bandwidth in your brain.  And what you do to close those files down, simplify your schedule, and quiet your life.

Let's compare notes.


I'd absolutely love for you to SUBSCRIBE HERE.

Paula & Jeanne & Donna & Richella & Lisa - thanks.

Bless your weekend ~
