Take A Little Rest

I had a conversation with my husband last night about how I want to slow down.  I told him I want to be free from the pressure to always be doing something.  Can’t I ever just be and not continually get things done?  

I wrote it down as something I’m asking God for - a slower pace of life.

Brian told me I need to believe the things I ask for are already done and behave that way.  So today … I did!  I napped when my son slept, I took him to the zoo instead of staying home and getting things done, I let him walk on his own instead of carrying him through the exhibits.  And it was really refreshing.  Possibly the best day I’ve had in a long time.  Hmmmm… why is that?

I realize now there’s deceit in the continual push to achieve more, take on more, get more things done.  It seems to me like more actually doesn’t fulfill what it promises and in the end it actually leaves me with less.
