Out of the Ordinary

Oct 10, 2018

This is the story about being full.

Really it's the story about understanding the difference between being empty, being full and then being stuffed to feeling sick. And we're not even talking about food.

This is an honest conversation about what we hunger and thirst after. How do we fix our cravings?

This week we dig into the idea that enough might be a life goal worth pursuing. But to do so we need to know when we've reached, enough, in a culture always hungry for more, more, more.

Are you tired of being tired?

Do you struggle with giving yourself permission to rest?

Feel guilty when you aren’t being productive?

Secretly dream about a sick day to lay at home and read all day?

Yeah, Shelly gets that.

If busy has become your recurring answer when people ask, “How are you?” maybe it is time to pause and make rest realistic instead of miraculous.
