…more hours in the day.
Yup, you guessed it – based on my lack of posts with regular consistency as well as my lack of commenting to all of your fantastic bloggy thoughts, I’m struggling.
My sister alluded to a portion of what’s got me in such a funk on her blog last night – it so very closely ties to a lot of things that have me scattered, and I’ll leave it at that.
My sister is also responsible for trying to drag me out of this funk by re-forwarding to me a Joel Osteen daily inspirational I forwarded to HER a few weeks ago when she was looking for that inspiration. Of course, it struck me, as it normally does:
In the same way, God doesn’t give us grace for a year at a time or even a month at a time. No, every 24 hours God has a fresh, new supply of grace, favor, wisdom and forgiveness. How are you going to make it through the seasons of your life? One day at a time. Look for His grace today. Look for His provision today. Look for His hand of favor and blessing today because He promises to supply everything you need for today.
One day at a time, or in my case today, one hour at a time. <exhale>
In addition to these words of inspiration (much-needed!), I also got to thinking this morning mid-workout, yet another reason to add to my ever-growing list of reasons for why AM workouts are the way to go, at least for me (as if I needed more ammo for that argument, right??):
I was laying in bed this morning contemplating skipping my workout when my mind automatically went into hyperdrive, thinking about everything on my to-do list today, tomorrow, the next day, and so on. Resisting the urge for more zzzs, I forced myself up and into my gym upstairs to get a weight workout in before heading to the office, and even though I was still scattered, brain going a mile a minute, somehow the lifting and lowering of the weights had a calming effect. Helped me to zone in and out as need be, the cadence of those weights still lingering in my mind as I type this. Amidst the sweat, the struggle (at times) of lifting those weights this morning, it set me straight for the day. Even though I still can’t shake the “un-ME” feeling, I’m at least a wee bit more focused than if I’d stayed under the covers this AM.
So – the upside in all of the chaos that has been surrounding me of late? At least my workouts aren’t suffering. 😉 It’s the little things…
