Recently, I have been burdened with too many commitments and too little time.
I know that I must finish each project in front of me but, overtaxed and worn, it is hard to keep going when I so want to stop.
So, when I find myself in the midst of a task that proves to be too great to bear, I reflect on a quote that has always helped me:
Just for today.
It is a simple saying but it reminds me that all I have to do is get through the present moment: the past is now gone and the future is not my concern.
I can tolerate any difficult situation for one day, one hour, one minute, one second if necessary.
Life is sometimes difficult, commitments can often weigh heavy, but if when I am overwhelmed I calm my mind and focus on the day… I will make it through.
“Dear God, help me to have the strength I need to see a task through to completion. Help me to be calm and focused as I work towards my goal.”
