I need to rest….

Posted by

It’s been a terribly long day today. I am so exhausted that it feels as if my headache has a headache! I am too drained to even think straight and yet my overactive mind seems to have no plans on letting me rest.

Sigh. I just want to lie down in peace. And sleep. And rest. And wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. In a hotel. On a tropical island somewhere. While on vacation………….

Ok hold up. I may have gotten carried away there…..lol.

But what I mean to say is that I am tired!!!!!! And despite us being in the season of the Covid-19 pandemic, I feel hopelessly overworked.

Overworked to the point of crankiness (and over-imaginativeness if that’s a word). I am pooped! I told my husband that today and he said that I can’t use that word seeing that it has another context to it 🤣.

But you get me right?

Why are we working so hard in the midst of all this? Why am I once again trying to be superwoman? Why can’t I just put my phone down and stare at the wall for 10 minutes? Or close my eyes without trying to figure out what to cook for dinner?

Sheesh!

What are we doing?! (And by we I mean me……but you are free to join in if this is you too 🤭)

Btw…this is also me

This is why I love writing! Hahahahaha! I always feel so much better while doing it. It helps me change my perspective 😉.

The truth is that I really do have alot on my plate right now. But you know what? Life is to be lived and enjoyed. So I have decided to at least try to implement one day per week for rest.

Rest is now one of my priorities.

I need it. We all need it! And even my church has been encouraging us to take some time to rest and reflect on the goodness of God. To consecrate ourselves before God and have a heart of Thanksgiving because He has been so very good to us.

Whether you are exhausted like me or not, my encouragement is to make rest a priority. Your body is a temple and when you treat it well, you feel so very much better on the inside and out.

Have a blessed Easter everyone! I’m off to cook……and then sleep 😄
