Whoa-WHERE on earth did this week go? Actually, thats a silly question. I was only in the office two days this week, and the other three days I was scheduled to be at conferences. One was for work, and one, The Global Leadership Summit, I was attending through church. This morning though, I woke up, ate my breakfast and drank my coffee in bed, and realized what I needed more than anything was to have a few hours of quiet. Of stillness.
The past few weeks have been go, go, go and I don't anticipate them getting any better anytime soon. I've been scheduled to travel three out of four weeks in August for work, and my days in the office are quickly getting filled with interviews, leaving little time for the rest of my work that awaits me. I'm supposed to start babysitting a couple nights a week at the end of the month, but my travel schedule is threatening to get in the way of that. Things that are important to me are getting pushed to the back burner, like running and spending time in God's word.
So this morning, I decided I'd take the morning off from the conference. It is an amazing conference, with speakers full of wisdom and insight, and learning and soaking it up is something I really enjoy. But today, I am going to spend a few hours on refueling my tank. I'm going to lounge in my pi's a little longer, and then I'm going to get up and spend some time reading my bible and journalling, and then go for a run along the river because its been too long since I've done that.
Hopefully by the time I head to the conference this afternoon, I am feeling like the load I am carrying is just a little lighter, that the chaos that sometimes feels so consuming is actually little and unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
