Beyond the Highlight Reel with Meredith Boggs {Podcast #701}

Do you feel like you are the only one whose life does not look perfect?

Maybe all you can see is the wreck in your home and in your relationships.

Maybe all you feel is distracted and exhausted.

While 2020 was tough for everyone, it did not stop the barrage of social media highlights, comparison traps, and endless cycles of saying you’ll stop scrolling social media and then being sucked right back in.

So what does it look like to live beyond the highlight reel?

It’s gritty and tough. Yes, it is still full of overflowing kitchen sinks and the same squabble over and over with your spouse. But it can also be about uncovering old hurts and finally putting a name to the anxiety you have always felt. And it starts by being honest.

On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, Meredith Boggs and I talked about marriage, parenting, mental health, and everything in between. Together we explore how to break out of the highlight reel mindset so that we can live free and find the life God intended for us to live — a life aligned with His best.

Meredith Boggs is a writer, speaker, nurse, and wife. She considers herself lucky enough to be born in her favorite city, Nashville, Tennessee, even luckier to marry her high school sweet heart.  You’ll find her traveling the world, fearlessly eating street food, playing with their pup Lady or dancing and champagne-toasting in their kitchen in his beautiful, wild, and daring adventure of life!

It is normal and okay to be frustrated, but you need to work on your response. – Meredith

Lamentations 3:22-25 ESV The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,  “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.
