Today I have been going in a million directions. To think I was completely and utterly bored last week….no school, no people in town, no activities–everything was slow because of the holidays.
Plop me into a manic Monday and it’s crazy-spinning-plates again.
Today so far:
1. School for kids
2. Rearrange kids school schedule because my oldest’s class got changed
3. Call 3 different teachers to get her schedule moved around
4. Texting, email, ah! social life back in full swing!
5. Launch and announce new cake website
6. Take down Christmas tree
7. Laundry…house cleaning boring junk…ugh..
8. Join “the Twitter”….eh, why not!
I’ve missed having a full schedule. Yeah, I know it’s nice having slow days where nothing is going on and we all stay in our jammies until noon, but I was done with that about 5 days ago. Somehow I feel more productive with a full schedule and every moment crammed full.
But maybe I need more quiet days….maybe I need to stop and “smell the roses.”
I read verses like “Be still and know that I am God” and I get antsy. My knees start twitchin’. I gotta move. “Be Still”? Unless it’s 9 pm, I’m a goin’ goin’ goin’ run faster kind-of-girl. But there is a place to “be still,” and I’ll call myself a “work in progress” on this one.
In Ephesians, Paul writes: “I want you to get out there and walk–better yet, RUN on the road God called you to travel…..”
Yeah!!! That’s what I’m talking about RUNNING! Yes, run full steam on the road God has called you to travel on.
I talked before about how I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions. (And I’m still not going to!) So I will call this a “personal goal.” This year, I would like make sure I explore every opportunity that is presented in front of me. Learning to say “yes” to trying things that could push me, my boundaries, my limits, and my dreams.
Before I say “I don’t like it,” TRY IT! I may just like green-eggs-and-ham but I won’t know unless I open my mouth and shove in a fork full.
This year, I would like to try new opportunities and take leaps like I have never done before. I have no idea what this will bring, but honestly, what’s the worst that could happen. Maybe a few mistakes. Maybe a few wrong turns. Maybe a few doors shut in my face. I don’t know. But I’m willing to try.
Following the path,
