Sometimes I work too hard, get too busy, and run rough-shod over problems – my own and maybe others. I often ignore this too busy problem for a while. After all, these many, many things I have to get done are very, very important! But wait a minute. They are not nearly as important as taking care of myself, getting the necessary sleep, eating properly, and taking some time to communicate in a loving way with persons in my family and in my life in general. But the tough thing is to make choices; often because I have to choose between several things I want to do, or things that other people want me to do. Making choices is not easy. I need to ask myself if what I am so busy at is really as important as some of the other things which are calling for some time.
May I slow down at least enough to take a quick personal inventory now and then. Help me to put myself on the list.
Today I will remember:
To realize the most important thing is to love God and myself.
