Noise Noise Noise

All we hear is noise from every media channel we are exposed to. Filling up our senses, cluttering up our minds, drawing our attention away from our lives. Political turmoil, state of the economy, fashions, trends, businesses, and worst of all, celebrity gossip.

While it is valuable to stay informed on current events that effect our lives, it should not take up as much of our time and focus as they would have it take up. To many of us are constantly plugged in to the streaming news on our mobile devices. More than an hour a week focused on these externals is too much.

Turn off the news, put down the phone, and let the peace of silence settle into us. Focus instead inward on ourselves. THIS is where growth and improvement happen. THERE …… inside, self reflection, introspection, is where we can make a change. The changes we make in ourselves, change how we see the world and how we interact with the world. This, in turn, inspires others. THAT is how we make a difference.

Staying focused on the news all the time just gives us more reasons to complain. Makes us whiners. It just adds to the noise problem.
