Choosing your battles.

I have found and continually find that knowing when to draw a line under things or continue pushing is one of the hardest things to do. I don’t know if it is something we will ever master but I am thankful that in all things we can find something to learn. I have always thought that it is better to have tried and lived than be to scared to take any steps and live in regret. Stuck in a constant limbo – a ‘what if’ person. Having said that, it is not everything we must experience. Some things are better left untouched. A purity of heart and mind in some areas to safeguard ourselves. What areas do we leave? Check the Bible. Proverbs3:5-6 ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path’. Nissi x

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx

    I have two teenagers and this lesson is being taught to me daily in bucket loads. I could argue with them every 5 minutes, but then I think is it worth it? Do I want to be at odds with them over some clothes on the floor or a toothbrush on the sink? “Don’t sweat the small stuff” was some very handy advice given to me, as well as “to pick your battles”. I believe our intuition is a great guide of when to leave it…..you know that little voice in your head or heart that says….”drop it, it is not worth it”. Somtimes being “right” or “winning” is just not worth it.
