Gasp! Take a deep breath!
Hurry up and wait!
It's my daily motto, how about yours? Rushing to tick the boxes on the daily checklist and something interrupts the goal. We become inconvenienced, which is an uncomfortable feeling. Things should happen immediately, not meander like a muddy-bottomed, slow-moving river. Our lives are centered around quick conveniences like drive-thru coffee stores, dry cleaners, fast food restaurants. Even our microwave ovens are too slow. Does anyone remember how long it took to cook a "TV dinner" in the oven? Yet many of us did it, all for some mystery meat and gelatinous potatoes. We need to slow down.
"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad." Proverbs 12:25
Recharge, find something that makes you smile. Whatever you enjoy doing that allows you to relax and take the focus off your never ending-checklist. Steal away by yourself to finish a chapter of that book you've been itching to read. If you play sports, go out to the batting cage or driving range, and enjoy the sunshine while improving your game. When you return, you'll find you look at things from a brighter perspective.
By the way, enjoy your day. I hope that you find your own patch of sunshine so you can rest and relax. If anyone needs the name of a great book, just ask me, that's my way of finding a little breathing room.
Where is your favorite spot to relax?
