I just had one more talk with one more tired woman.
She’s busy all the time. She has no time for herself. She doesn’t do any real “self care.” Her relationships are superficial because she doesn’t have the time and energy for more. Enjoyable sex is out of the question. Time with God? Not really because she is doing, doing, doing.
I don’t mean to point fingers in judgement. I have been this woman at times in my life. Mostly I’m just trying to remind us all that busyness is a killer … of your health, of your relationships, of the joy and beauty that is life.
Slow down. Choose more wisely. Make some margin in your life so that you have time for the important stuff (and then let the rest go).
Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop. Ovid

If the concept of “margin” is speaking to you, the book by the same name is a good resource ~ Margin by Richard Swenson
