Sometimes you steer off course, sometimes something runs you off the road. I'm happy to say, this time it wasn't my bad decisions that sent me flying, it was simply my body saying slow down.
As I slowly get back up to speed, it is paramount that I pay attention to the speedometer and the road ahead. My driving teacher in high school would always say keep your eyes on the horizon. This way you can see any problems before you get there.
It's easy to get full of yourself and feel invincible, especially when you think you are doing all the right things. This brings us to that old adage: "All things in moderation, even moderation." I was trying to get everything into everyday. Getting up at 4:30 a.m., writing, quiet time, exercise, eat a healthy breakfast, run to a meeting and get to work by 8. From there it was 6-7 hours on my feet helping people. My job is very physical, mental and emotional. After a while, my body said to me: "ENOUGH already"!
Here I am, starting up again. This time I am pacing myself. I may not get my blog done everyday, or get to a meeting every day, or exercise every day. It's about priorities and balance. I am not in my prime anymore and I can't keep striving to get back there. It is unrealistic.
SO, today I am fantasizing the freedom to trust God and live life on life's terms, let go of guilt for not doing everything.
