In a world that is constantly moving, I am learning how important it is to set limitations. Limitations that often make me a little less than popular. In fact, the limitations that I have set for myself sometimes leave me feeling a little less than popular. However, I am learning that without these limitations that I am an utter mess.
Sometimes we forget how important setting limitations are.
We need limitations on how much television we consume.
We need limitations on how much internet time we allow ourselves.
We need limitations on how much time we volunteer for things outside our home.
We need limitations on how often we work on projects that do not benifit our family.
Setting limitations keep us grounded, it keeps us focused and it keeps us mindful of the things that are truly important. I myself have been guilty of not having limitations set. I am even guilty of letting the lack of limitations consume me so much that I almost lost myself in the process.
One of the most important things that we can do for ourselves is to admit that we are in fact weak. That we need accountability from friends and that we need to have definite lines drawn for ourselves. In doing so, we allow ourselves to actually absorb the world around us and in our own homes. Limitations keep us in a centered state of mind.
Taking time to truly evaluate what we have going on in our lives not only allows us to see the things that we need to cut from our lives but it allows God to reveal to us what it is that we have been neglecting. A lot of times you will find that you have been neglecting time alone in God’s Word, time alone to focus on pampering yourself and sometimes you may even discover that you have been neglecting your marriage.
Allow yourself to accept the fact that you can not do everything. Come to terms to the fact that it is not humanly possible to be everything to everyone in your life. In doing so, you are allowing yourself to become overwhelmed, unfocused and completely unusable.
