Sometimes LIFE CAN BE SO BUSY! And it just keeps getting busier! You find yourself running from one appointment to another never really finding time to stop. You wake up and even before your feet touch the ground, you're in go-mode! As your day progresses, the calls just keep coming in and it's one thing after another.
Life can prove entirely busy and time-consuming. But we have all come to embrace life as so. If it's not the job it's friends or social media or ministry or family or television. Our lives are so full of events that just keep going we just have to be deliberate and stop.
I find that too many people are moving through life fatigued and cranky because they barely get enough rest. No, I don't mean sleep but rest. They just have not taken time off to shut everything out and breathe for a moment.
Unfortunately I used to be one of those people who was always feeling tired, spent, fatigued- and many times I find myself slipping back into it- but I have learnt to be more deliberate about my time. I have learnt that I am worth the investment that I give to other things in my life. And I have learnt that I am as important as the things I often prioritise over myself.
I have learnt to invest in me- and I don't mean the left over time when I'm tired and out of it. I mean productive time when I can just sit and think through life, re-invent myself and spend time exploring my dreams, passions, ambitions and aligning them to fit into my time.
You are worth your time! You are worth your productive time! You are worth the time when you are alert and can make sense of the things you want to do with your life! Invest in yourself because you are worth it!
