I felt cranky last night and I’m trying to put my finger on it. I’ve been telling God all the reasons I think I felt impatient and irritated….but I really want to know His thoughts too. This is what I’m hearing, be still and rest. Are you focusing on an agenda or are you focusing on love. What really matters? Accomplishing something or being kind and patient in my speech? Do I value relationships or am I more focused on gaining wisdom?
So this is my answer…I need rest. I am trying to do too much and commit to more than I can handle. It’s ok for others to take a break and that goes for me too. Prioritize and be honest with my limits. I’m irritated when my committements take me away from my family too much or if I’m setting myself up for lack of sleep. It’s only my own fault if I don’t choose to say ‘yes’ to the things I value. No one is pressuring me to do anything and I am the only one who knows what I need.
Sorry God. I want to be kind and soak up the moments with people. So on that note, I know what I need to do in the future. I have to say, ‘no’ to some things so I can be the BEST version of me in my life.
