but it's Monday, and i make my list on Monday.
and then i read this post. and i felt less guilty.
because i don't have to. and i never thought about making that list before, never really got the idea that maybe it would be okay to not do something. that maybe it would be healthy to not do.
:: and so today, i don't have to ::
- fold laundry perfectly
- paint my nails
- shave my legs
- worry about anyone but me
- stress over things out of my control
- drink tea
- put on makeup
- act like i have it all together. i don't.
- feel overwhelmed.
i'm bad at not doing. i'm very good at overdoing.
because i'm still sick, still sniffling and coughing and aching all over with tissues and quilts. and i need to rest, and i need to breathe. and i need to know that it's okay to not do, and just be.
and that's my gift today. that silent moment when i jump into the pool from the in-between and His country. i'm lingering close to the surface today, because today i don't have to drown.
i can just be.
