Wow, what an amazing week. I feel as though I am running on empty and not sure how to fill myself up.
“A Strong Person knows how to keep their life in order. Even with tears in their eyes, they still manage to say “I am OK” with a smile!”
Tears are a part of life. Let’s face it, we have tears when we are happy, sad, devastated, silly, laughing and so on. Tears come easy to some people and not so easy to others. Let the tears flow because they are a release of anxiety one has managed to keep pent up. They can also be a laugh waiting to happen and burst into the world. They are not a reflection of your strength or lack there of. They are a gift one should let flow from the heart. Of course, if you are like me they pop out at the most embarrassing times. I remember reading a scripture at my youngest daughters baptism and there I was in the middle of the reading and I had to stop because I was crying and the tears were flowing. Absolutely paralyzing!
Let’s go back to running on empty and how to combat this very powerful and real feeling within our bodies. Some days, I am overwhelmed at what is on my plate. I simply feel, I will never get it all done. I am sure to let someone else down by not accomplishing all of my tasks. My task list looks like the directory or index for an extensive book. I am finding that no matter what I should accomplish, I can only accomplish what I can. I do my best to get what must get done, finished and the rest will wait until tomorrow. Sometimes, I let others down and sometimes it is only myself I let down. This does not mean I am not good at what I do, it simply means the well went dry that day and what is done is good and what is not will still be there tomorrow.
In thinking this way, I am able to accomplish more and not sweat the little things. I apologize to my dear friend for some days not getting it done. I apologize if I let you down. I apologize for not always being there. I apologize for running on empty when things get me down. I still love you and will do everything in my power to get it done.
Wishing you an amazing day!
