It's that time of year when we all have so many things to get done & some in a short time just so we can do something else next. Since we have moved my wife & I get overwhelmed sometimes looking around & thinking about so many things we need to get done. I told her earlier you know since we have lived out here I don't remember just taking a whole day & just do nothing.
Don't get me wrong we love living in the country but sometimes we need to remind ourselves of our limitations. The last five years I have had both of my shoulder joints replaced...about 2 years apart. I feel good but I can't work like I use to or do things in long periods of time especially doing things above my head. I have to pace myself or just stop when I should.
I don't think anyone on here is a lazy person. We all enjoy just doing things whether it's our job's, things around the house, tinkering & having many hobbies. I use to be involved in men's ministry at our old church & enjoyed it tremendously. I use to & still do tell people you know your limitations because most of the time it hurts before we quit. Not to sound selfish but we have to take care of ourselves because most of us have a lot depending on us. If I'm not at at my best or close to it how can I be at my best for others. I'm preaching to myself too because we all do it. If your feeling bad, hurting somewhere or just simply tired tell someone or stop & rest. If your recovering from an illness or surgery take it easy. If your like me sometimes my mind gets ahead of my body telling me I can do more than I actually can.
