The second must do when I want to isolate is: Only do what I can do. I’ve learned that I should not put a lot of expectations on myself. I only do what I can do, through God’s strength. I have discovered how to give myself a break.
Maybe I can’t do it all, everyday single day, and that’s okay. Wow! Did I really just say that?
When my summer was filled with heartache and trials, I cleared my schedule. I allowed time for my heart to recover. In the past, I pushed through. This past summer I didn’t. I gave myself the needed space.
In giving myself that needed space, I was able to exhale and just breathe.
And breathing gives way to life.
