My mother would probably describe me as a lazy person. She would be wrong, but it’s easy to see why she would think so.
I haven’t written here for a month.
I haven’t done laundry longer than that. I just keep wearing clothes until they smell. (Sorry, I know, I’m a little gross. (Ok, maybe a lot gross.))
I don’t even know when the last time it was that I picked up my knitting.
As far as “Hanging Out” with people has gone, for the last month, pretty much the only social interaction I’ve had was from weddings and showers that I had to go to because I said I would, before I knew what a beast June was going to be.
But I’m not lazy. I just have different priorities.
I found out that if I work from 8 am – 7 pm, I need to sit and not do anything for the rest of the day if I’m going to be able to function.
I realized that it’s ok to focus on me. I don’t have to be the person with the answers for others all the time.
I discovered that the world will still turn if I don’t check Facebook or Twitter, and the world doesn’t need to see every single cool flower pic I’ve taken on Instagram.
I found that spending time in the Word for myself is so much better than reading someone else’s blog post on their time with God.
I’ve realized that the world outside can be energizing, and exciting, and that sometimes, I just need to force myself to go out and have a good time.
I guess I’m admitting that I am still learning so much about my priorities in life, and what I want them to be.
I know I can’t keep all of this up. I don’t want too. There are far to many interesting things out there, that I’d miss out on if I always had mandatory down time. I have far to many cute outfits that will eventually have to be washed. Facebook and Twitter are excellent ways to keep tabs on my friends all over. But it is ok to let some things slide, as long as it’s not the important things. And it’s ok to be ok with that.
Thanks for reading! I’ve missed you all!
