This last bout of cold bug virus has taken a lot out of me. I just can’t seem to snap back to myself. My energy level is at an all time low. My Mom getting sick and sharing the virus with me has knocked me off my feet one time too many. Being sick is hard enough but having to take care of someone else who’s sick at the same time is virtually impossible. I don’t know how I did it but I did it. I do know how I did it actually, it was with the help of God.
During my time of sickness I had a lot of time to think. What I do know is that the Zeal is gone! I’m moving like a turtle these days and I couldn’t keep up the Momentum I had just a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes we have to regroup and change course. I’m still doing a work for God but I’ve taken a whole lot off of my plate. Right now I’m working with a saucer, before I was working with a dinner platter. That’s the easiest way to burn myself out by doing too much. I was definitely trying to do too much and requiring way too much of myself.
It’s time for me to slow down. I know what my goals are and I have to plan and focus. I’m the queen of lists and plans. I’m taking it one day at a time. One goal at a time. I’ve changed my voicemail greeting and keeping it fun and simple. I’m still Minister Brenda but there are many sources of help out there and I’m here to guide, direct and help you find them. I’m taking charge because I can’t be helpful to others if I’m burned out and overwhelmed myself.
