Sometimes too much gratefulness can lead to trouble. Have you ever been stopped dead in your tracks and realized – I just crashed. Last week that happened to me. I failed at something that means a lot to me and I became ill. Failing is hard - I have never failed at anything.
I run on the belief that I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams. Because of my many blessings, I not only work for a rural health care system, which means I wear two or three hats at one time, but I also teach nursing online, run a free health clinic, am working on completing a post-master’s degree in family practice, and I am an active volunteer in my community. On top of all of this my husband ran a campaign and was elected to the Mississippi County Quorum Court.
With all of these things going on at one time - I have been running on 3 – 5 hours of sleep a night, horrible food and no exercise. So, this weekend I crashed – from exhaustion and a urinary tract infection.
This next week I will be in thoughtful consideration and prayer for direction. I refuse to ever push myself to the point of crashing again. I want time to enjoy life. I want to have time to run, practice yoga, scrapbook, trout fish and knit.... What do you do when you find your life out of control?
