I am the type of person who takes 5 books along
for a weekend getaway.
Surprised when not even a single page
has been opened.
I tend to overestimate my available time.
This mindset brings me to
the next part of our inventory.
Avoid overload by picking a favorite.
When I carry a large tote bag of books with
me on a trip and don’t finish any of them,
all I have accomplished is to drag a heavy load with me.
It isn’t a mystery why I feel defeated by the volume of my
lack of reading.
When we pick 10 different ways we like to rest and attempt
to fit each one into a given time frame, we most likely will
fail and end up even more tired simply trying
to attempt this Herculean feat.
Pick your favorite
be it a nap,
sitting in the sun,
doing a crossword puzzle,
playing with your grandchildren,
scattering sunflower seeds,
or sneaking in a spontaneous matinée.
Pick the time.
Enjoy your favorite way to rest.
Start small and commend yourself for
the stellar care you are taking of one
of God’s favorite people…
