So, at some point in the coming days, I'm planning to be lazy. For one full day while the kids are at school, I will do only things that I genuinely want to do. No "shoulds." No guilt. No planned out schedule.
Lazy for a day.
I know this sounds ridiculous, but I'm not sure I can do it. And yet, this heaviness that hangs over me, this pressure of always living under the self-imposed gun, has got to go. As I sit back and think about all of this, I wonder if this fear of rest is actually just another trust issue with me.
Do I really trust that if I heed the call to rest that the things that are truly important will still get done?
Do I trust that even if people do look down on me for taking a break, it doesn't really matter?
Do I trust that my self-worth isn't really based on what I do, but who I am?
If you've been reading me for awhile, you might be thinking, "Same ole story, second verse." I know. I know.
I've just checked my calendar. Next Thursday, I'm wide open. Next Thursday, I'm gonna be lazy.
What are your best "How to be Lazy tips?" Please leave them for me in the comments. All advice that I take on Thursday will be featured next Friday morning when I report on my day of laziness. Ready...go!
