Be Where Your Feet Are

Booster Apps

Be where your feet are. What does that even mean? Aren’t you always where your feet are? They’re kind of attached to you, right? I’ve heard one of my favorite writers, Kaitlin Rogers, mention that sentence several times. It really got me thinking, what does that actually mean? Then, it hit me. I’m super guilty of this. My feet go lots of places, but my mind doesn’t always go with them. So much of the time when I get home from work in the afternoons, my mind is racing. I’m thinking about what I’ve got going on the next day, what I need to be doing, why I haven’t met certain goals, the list could go on and on. I’m always worrying about something! And that is no exaggeration. My mind is so far gone so much of the time and I’m not appreciating the short time I am with my family in the afternoons. I’m one of those people that struggle with being satisfied and that’s not something that I’m proud of. I don’t think it’s always a bad thing, but it’s not a good thing either. Being satisfied means you don’t leave yourself room to grow and you’re not setting goals to better yourself. But, when you’re constantly focusing on what’s next, you’re not enjoying the present and what God has already blessed you with. For me, social media has a lot to do with this. I know I’m not the only one! We compare our lives to these people that we don’t even know. All these perfect pictures in these tiny squares make others lives seem so perfect. So perfect that it can’t be real, right? Right! No one’s life is perfect and I have to stop and remind myself of this every day! There’s so much that we don’t see behind all those perfect, tiny squares. Comparison is for sure the thief of joy. We have to stop and realize that God has us where we are for a reason and sometimes I forget that! For me, it’s hard to find the balance between trying to better yourself, working towards your goals, etc. without completely alienating and not appreciating what you have and where you are in life now. Time flies by so fast, and one day we will all look back and realize how much time we wasted worrying about what we don’t have and comparing our lives to others. So I encourage you (and myself) to look hard for the balance, appreciate the present, and BE WHERE YOUR FEET ARE. And if you can’t remember it on your own, we created a tee to help remind you! Coming this spring!
