Life has been demanding lately and I am just plain old tired.
I keep on thinking that I'll pause and get a little rest but that just doesn't seem to be happening.
It seems that there is always something to be done.
In a phone call today I told somebody that I'm wondering if I will ever NOT feel tired again.
A couple of blog posts I read as I was catching up today even referenced resting:
The first one is called Rest Is Not a Weakness. Let me say that I love the look of this writer's Lifebook. Years ago I jused to keep a Writer's Notebook and had lots of things stapled and taped into it along with my writing. However, mine never looked as pretty and interesting as hers. Maybe I should use that inspiration and begin the practice of keeping a writing book again.
The other is called Practicing Rest in a Fast-Paced World. I like the idea of practicing it! Maybe if I could practice, I could perfect it. While I might not agree with everything in the aforementioned post, I do think the concept of giving myself permission and practicing rest is a good idea.
I intend to do just that - rest - sometime soon.
