Life can get crazy. Really crazy...to the point where you find yourself going, going, going...and before you know it, running on empty. I speak from experience. However, I also know that during these times of intensity, it becomes all the more important to make sure to take time to do things like rest, and activities you enjoy...things that will 'fill you up', so to speak. By saying I 'know' these things...that really means I 'know them in my head', but that doesn't necessarily translate to actually 'doing' them.
Here's the amusing part...I actually had to really think to figure out what I would enjoy doing and what would 'fill my tank'. What surprised me and made me chuckle (because it seems so different from what I would have chosen 10 to 20 years ago) was my choice of activities.
I think today I will paint my nails and read a theology textbook...and I'm looking forward to it. Boy, I've come a long way, baby.
What fills your tank?
