What are you worshiping?

You might automatically say God or some other sort of spiritual connection, or you might say that you worship absolutely nothing. But this concept deserves some thought. Because I believe we are all worshiping things we might not even be aware of. Our attention can be a form of worship…

For example, when you scroll on Instagram or other social media, what is predominant in your feed? Is it scantily clad people posing provocatively? Is it fitness authorities working out in a gym and giving advice? Is it beautiful travel destinations? Is it inspirational quotes and motivational clips? Is it cooking tips? This is not to say that any of these are good or bad. Just a reminder to be mindful about where you are placing the bulk of your attention and make sure you feel good about it.

This goes for life in general. What hobbies do you spend time on? What type of people do you surround yourself with? These places you are putting your attention have the power to build you up or break you down. If you are surrounding yourself with jerks much of the time you typically will not reach your highest potentials. If you are insecure about your body and you constantly look at pictures of “perfect” bodies and compare yourself to them you are probably not going to feel great about yourself. If you are spending your time being inspired and motivated by uplifting people and stories then you are likely going to adopt that mindset. The things you do, the content you consume, and the people you surround yourself with, really mold who you are and who you are becoming.
