One Day at a Time


Today's question: Which daily tasks take up most of your energy?

Hmmmm… Thirty minutes have passed, and I’m trying to think of an answer. A year ago an answer to this question would have been shared with no hesitation. It would have included: stress, worry, talking myself out of the bed each day, etc.  I’ve been exhausted too many times to not notice the warning signs of energy drain. Thankfully, I have made a conscious effort to keep my energy in balance. 

Therefore, the daily tasks that are of the utmost importance are prayer, meditation, and working towards fulfilling my purpose.  From these tasks, everything else in my life flows. I’ve learned that it’s not beneficial to me to rush out of bed, hurry to start my day and skip talking to God or end the day and not let Him know how thankful I am.  

Do I get it right every day? No, I don’t. Am I always feeling balanced? Of course not. The point is that I have made these “tasks” a daily commitment, because I want to have more good days than bad ones. I’m also hoping to make Erma Bombeck’s quote my reality:

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
