It occurred to me as I was catching up on a few magazines over the weekend that I was skimming through the articles that didn’t apply to me(fortunately that means I didn’t need to learn more than I’d ever want to know about varicose veins). I thought to myself that I’m so glad I learned many years ago that just because I had a subscription didn’t mean I had to read the entire thing cover to cover every month. Once I started thinking of it that way I wasn’t as overwhelmed by it all so much and it became much more manageable to me as a result. Today I thought I’d share this thought with you so that you could feel less guilt along with me.
Back when my kids were small and I subscribed to Parent’s magazine I tried to absorb all of the information for the upcoming years. As it turned out by the time my kids got to that age not only had I forgotten those nuggets of wisdom but those that I did in fact remember were sometimes no longer applicable! I was amazed that our generation survived with all the new rules and regulations that were changing almost daily, who can keep up?!
So I leave you with this, unless you are relaxing on the beach and have all the time in the world, don’t worry about reading all of your magazines cover to cover, it’s just too much pressure. What magazines do you read cover to cover or better yet, which ones are you overwhelmed by?
