Good Day, God!
My Life is beginning to feel like this lovely Hau Tree walkway. There is time to stop, take photos, appreciate the beauty all around me. I am Walking, not Running. It is Wonderful!
Of course, first I had to stop valuing SPEED and PRODUCTIVITY. That was not easy, God. In fact, I guess it happened slowly — over time — no doubt with Your help. I say that because folks stuck in addictions need Your Help!
Turning our lives over to a Higher Power? I don’t suppose You fret too much about what we call You, God. After all, You are looking at our Hearts — looking WAY beyond Words!
And now I am honestly puzzled as to why it took me so long to slow down and do less. Why, indeed!
Maybe because I was born around the same time Superman was created? I did grow up listening to Faster than a Speeding Bullet . . . able to Leap Tall Buildings in a Single Bound!
I’m smiling, God. I realized a few years ago that while I was still (in my own mind) leaping tall buildings in a single bound, landing was getting harder and harder! Ah, but I thought I just had to TRY HARDER.
Now, I am working at building in recovery time. In May, after returning home across 11 time zones, I am going to do NOTHING for several days! I will just block that time off on my calendar.
Wow! I am actually starting to stop pretending to be Superwoman and beginning to take care of myself!
