“Your busyness is your inability to deal with whatever it is you need to do to heal.”
And there it was. Spoken from a place of compassion, but that truth was like a smack to the face.
Rest is not a punishment.
I am a reformed full calendar junkie.
Admittedly the habit started as an activity duty military spouse when my honey was deployed or away. When the silence and empty left side of the bed was too much.
So I ran myself into exhausted.
Wash, recycle, repeat.
15 years later I was confronted with that rooted, gaping hole.
Just keep treading water.
Look at all those filled up spaces on your calendar! Who cares if your mental, physical, spiritual health is flat lining!
I could write an epic Victorian novel on the toll this pace took on my body. The sickness, the unconfronted trauma, the toxic traits, habits and relationships.
Stop, breath, you’ve got this if you just slow down.
Commit to meeting Jesus at the well and letting Him fill up and cleanse those wounds.
That is where true fulfillment comes from.
Time is not recoverable.
No is not a bad word.
Boundaries are love.
Wouldn’t you rather spend it in such a way that honors the creator and lover of your soul?Imperfections and all♥️
