The other night, at our presidency meeting, our wonderful Primary President mentioned the scripture about not running faster than you are able. I laughed at myself on the inside because I thought, “If I don’t run faster than I’m able, all I’ll do is lay around in my jammies all day.” I thought about that and realized that even though laying around in my jammies isn’t realistic, I could afford to let a few things go.
I, like so many others, often try to do too much. And I don’t stop until my body forces me to. So I decided that for the next little while, I’m taking it easy. No more worrying about all the little things. I pulled up my to-do list (can you believe it was a 2 page document on my computer?!) and hit “delete”. I didn’t delete the whole thing, but I decreased it’s length significantly. I’ve got seven weeks until this baby is supposed to come and I want to enjoy that time, rather than wish it would last longer so I have time to finish everything on that darn two-page list. Instead, I’m going to make a list of things like,
- snuggle with my (not so) little boy
- use that massage gift certificate I’ve been holding onto forever
- and bake cookies (because I just can’t stop)
I just thought all of you could use a reminder as well that:
It’s okay to say, “I’ve done good enough”
“To hell with the rest of it!” (try it! It’s invigorating!)
let it be.
