Against The Grain

Convenience is huge for us nowadays. We’re all extremely busy and anything that makes our lives easier, we’ll take it, won’t we?

20 years ago I used to drive to Blockbuster to get movies. A few years later and Redbox came out. Soon after that, Blockbuster went out of business. Redbox is still around, but you can now, as you know, rent just about anything without leaving your house.

In fact, you really don’t have to leave your house for much of anything anymore if you wanted to just sit at home and have products, services, and information delivered to you from your smartphone. Times have changed, and so have we.

Just a few clicks away….

Amazon Prime: Just about anything you can think of.

Carvana: Car vending machine, delivered to you.

Netflix/Hulu: Movies & Tv Shows

Click A Cart: Grocery delivery

Telemedicine: Dr’s appointments over the phone

Prescription Delivery: Sign up and you can have your prescriptions delivered

Door Dash/Uber Eats: Restaurant/Fast food delivery

Apps For Exercise/Peletons: Exercise at home…this has been around for a long time, but technology has improved dramatically.

I love things that make my life easier and I’m sure you do too. I use a lot of these things from time to time, but I’m aware of what this convenience can develop in my heart.

Laziness

Unrealistic expectations in other areas of my life or from other businesses or people

Impatience

The list could go on. I think it’s important to be aware of how convenience can inhibit our personal growth, affect relationships, and hinder our progress in regard to our health.

If we are able to get things right away all the time, might we be in danger of expecting change right away too in the gym? I think so.

There’s pour-over into our lives, whether we know it or not. Convenience has the tendency to breed laziness. Just be aware of your expectations and go against our culture when you can.

I’m finding I’m having to go against the grain increasingly more than years past and I am checking my attitude when I don’t get things right away. I get mad when I type something in our browser and it doesn’t load in less than 5 seconds.

I’m glad I realize how silly my impatience is and I hope you choose to examine where you have unrealistic expectations in your life and begin to look into how you can go against convenience in regard to your health.

Times have changed. We can take advantage of convenience, enjoy it, and see it for what it is. It’s a blessing. Just be aware of what is being formed in your heart due to the convenience and be diligent in the areas of your life that need the attention these things can’t give.
