During my divorce, I often found myself overly tired.
I was emotionally wounded and worn.
I was constantly distracting myself with activities to keep my mind from lingering in pain and despair.
It felt as if I was swimming against the current and exhausted from the effort.
Today, when I feel overtaxed, it is time for me to stop and look at what I need to do to allow myself to rest and recover.
It is not being selfish if I need to take a step back and take care of myself.
I can keep my current commitments, finish out my tasks, then clear my calendar and take the time to fulfill my own needs.
I am no good to others if I cannot manage to take the time to care for myself.
“Dear God, help me to put first things first. Help me to do what I need to do to be the best person that I can be today.”
