Pacing

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

A term I recognize when running. If I go out too fast in a race or run I don't have the energy to keep up that pace and find that I loose ground. I tire, my energy level drops and I fall off my "pace".
It can happen in my day to day things as well. I get hung up on doing and doing and not realizing that I am not pacing. I use up my energy and next thing I know I'm in a panic. I'm frustrated, anxious, not realxed. Today was such a day. Way over whelmed. It was good to take a step back, to admit my condition, and then to regroup my thoughts. I tackled one goal and got it accomplished. I was also able to get a few other things done. I didn't reach for the extra food that I often do.
I did pass on my evening run with the running group. I just didn't have it in me to go. I could site the weather, but to be honest I just didn't want to do the running.
My goals will be a more energetic person in the morning.
Remember to take the breaths I need, plan, relax, and chill. It all doesn't have to be done today, or all at once. Little chunks of time will get me to my goal.
Here I am at the end of my day and much more relaxed than a few hours ago. That is good.

  


leading

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

There were times that I had many responsiblities for other people. Leading seemed to be what I did. I taught women how to sew, teenagers in sunday school, younger kids in suday school, nail technicians how to use products. All that has changed. Maybe right now it is my turn to learn and step on the sidelines and see how others do things. It is a great responsibility to teach and lead, but is that where God wants me right now. There is much to learn as well and I pray to be the student God wants me to be. Thank you Lord for being my teacher.
