Tired. That’s me right now. So, tired in fact that I am doing this Friday Minute Friday (#FMF) post on Saturday because I was simply too tired to do this Friday.
I had to chuckle a little when I saw the word for Five Minute Friday was tired.
I work at a faith based organization and every morning our leadership team starts our morning meeting with a devotional and prayer. Yesterday ( Friday), the devotional was about taking care of ourselves. A few of my coworkers looked at me to which I responded with a laugh….”Stop looking at me!” It is well known that I often do not sleep more than six hours a night.
Everyone knows I am tired. I push myself. I work hard. I don’t rest and relax well.
Last night, I had a quiet house to myself. I couldn’t focus on a movie. My attention span is such that I don’t do well with doing nothing.
Sigh….no wonder I am exhausted.
How fitting the word of the week for #FMF would be tired.
So, I know this but what do I do with this? There is quote that reads something like this…if you do what you’ve always done, you get what you’ve always gotten. No change in behavior means no change in outcome.
This verse comes to mind….
It is useless to get up early
and stay up late
in order to earn a living.
God takes care of his own,
even while they sleep.[a] Psalm 127:2
Maybe I need to take some cueing from my furry friend. He plays hard but rests well.
Anyone else have difficulty resting and relaxing? What helps you?
