My good friend, Mary Jane Capps, is a writer. And by that, I mean, she writes. I'm a writer who's trying desperately to find time to write without getting up earlier than my already-too-early wake-up call of five a.m., but I promise myself it's going to happen. Matter of fact, it's happening right now, right here, as I type. Husband's getting dressed, clothes are in the wash, and here I sit, writing.
I'm sure Mary Jane is right about how easy it is to spend all of one's time promoting one's latest book. I'm not promoting a book and I'm still challenged to find time to write. Maybe my plate's just a little too full, or maybe it's just my head that's too full.
I'm grateful for all I have going on in my life and frequently laugh about how my days are a study in abundance. I'm a positive thinker and see my 'study in abundance' phrase as infinitely more positive than, "Oh, my gosh. I've got so cotton-picking-much going on, I can't see strait!" But sometimes, it still gets to be a bit too much.
So, maybe it's time to let go of a few things, time to stop devoting so much energy to making sure everything and everybody is good. Do you find yourself doing that? I'm going to assure my heart, as well as yours, that everyone out there is good, and that your worrisome mind can take a break and refocus on that thing that's most precious to you.
What will you do with your day?
