How have you filled in these blanks?

“Someday” when I don’t have to ___________, then I will _________.

Like me, you might need more blanks! 

Having finally reached my “someday,” while I’m enjoying the things I’ve been looking forward to, I often think back on those days when I was doing all of those things I’d wished away and wish I had taken time to enjoy them. 

As a young mother, I seemed to be navigating my life one task at a time. I daydreamed about a life I believed would be more fulfilling instead of being awake and in the moment.

During this episode, Anjuli Paschall describes what it’s like to feel the underlying anxiety that you are missing out on the good life, to zone out, to swipe up, to be slimming down, to be working harder, and to spin in circles with the anxiety of not living life to the fullest.

That was something Anjuli wanted to change! Knowing she loved people fearlessly and walked with God faithfully. 

In addition, she wants to believe that she is loved and even liked.

Anjuli is going to tell us how she discovered that the full life isn’t found by chasing it. It’s found by coming awake to it, and she wants you to live a soul-awake life too!
