I just added Busy Life to the title. And I do consider my busy days, my busy year, and my busy life as a blessing. I am not complaining, but I think many readers will be able to relate to what I am about to share.
I recall very clearly the day last week when I started the title, and it was all the further I got in my blog.
It was Friday. I had already missed my usual blog day of Thursday. I pulled into Little Cesar's Drive thru with a plan to pick up pizzas. I had a crew of helpers at my Camp that I needed to feed. I did not know it, but the pizza shop did not open until 11 AM. As I pulled up to the window, I could see people inside, prepping for the day. The pretty teenager young lady came to the window, and informed me that I'd have to come back at 11 o'clock as the store was not open yet. I said, "Ok, what time is it?" as I reached for my smart phone. It was 10:40 AM. I thought for a second and told the girl, "I think I will just turn off my engine and wait until you open."
And for 20 peaceful, beautiful minutes, I stopped and rested, and rested, and rested some more. And I thought, I need to send a quick blog note out for the day.....but I only got the title done, and before I knew it, a stack of hot pizzas were ready, and my 20 minutes of doing NOTHING was over.
Later in the weekend, after the big festivities of Saturday had passed, I did a quick note to my Team on our Facebook Team page. Sunday eve is my usual night to do my lesson to learn and to share with my Team Younger You. I posted the picture below and wrote this:
No lesson tonight except that sometimes as busy multi taskers in life, we "hit the wall" and say "I'm done."
And it's ok. It's only a problem if you become in a permanent state of hitting the wall. Then you aren't living. You are making excuses, and you may need some help and push for a change or intervention.
I'm there. "I'm done." "I hit the wall.".......HOWEVER, give me a day or two (maybe a week, LOL) and I'll be up and running.
I have a lot of living, loving, giving, and making a difference left to do.
In closing, I thought sharing, being transparent and vulnerable may help one of you---my family, friends, and followers. We are all so busy befriending and nurturing others, please don't forget to befriend and nurture yourself.
And honestly, my energy levels are almost back to normal and my spirit is re-igniting.
In Suzannah B. Troys words, "Live each moment as if your hair is on fire!"
In my words, "Once the fire burns out, REST & BE STILL"--- (with your legs up on the recliner, that's what I did!)
Here's to Good Health and Much Happiness,
Your Friend, Dr. Younger You :)
