After the past month and a half of working double shifts, I finally decided to try take it easy this week. I have more days off than usual at my main job, which makes it a little stressful for me to consider not taking sub jobs (especially when I enjoy subbing more than my main job). However, after yesterday's homily at my church, I wanted to try to redirect some of my time towards other things.
Part of the reason for this is recognizing that with my pseudo-fasting for Lent, I don't have the energy I'm used to having. The other part was realizing that I've been forgetting a LOT of things lately because I'm just so busy. I also don't know that what I'm busy with are necessarily things that ought to occupy all of my time. I wonder what I will discover by the end of this week.
Goals for this week: read more scripture, pray more, try to be present in the moment, offer more thanks than petition during prayer.
