It seems that I don’t listen enough to my body and mind when it screams for me to rest. And, here I am again being stubborn. After my left arm healed, I just kept on working until last night when my right arm began to hurt. It is feeling very much like when I hurt the rotator cuff in my left arm. But, at least this time I heard and decided to slow it down.
God wants all of us to rest and even He did when creating the universe. Not that He gets tired but as an example to us to enjoy the things and people around us. It shouldn’t be that we have to get sick before we realize we have to stop and relax.
Rest and relaxation doesn’t always mean the body but also the mind. Sometimes, I have too many thoughts whirling around and I find it hard to clear it. The other thing is I’m really busy on my day job and so trying to run the card Shop at night is catching up with me. Tonight, I hit rock bottom.
I feel so exhausted mentally and emotionally, also spiritually. I’m beginning to wonder about my future plans with cardmaking. It just seems like I’m not doing as well as I had dreamed I would. Maybe it’s the time of the year, maybe it’s because I’m trying too hard…whatever it is… I’m back to square 1, back to my Maker. I’m asking Him where to go from here. What’s the next step? It may be time to rest. Even rest while I wait for Him to answer me.
