Friday’s are a reward at the end of a week but they also make me assess my time management. This morning I wondered if I’d hesitated on an opportunity? Should I have already completed more projects? How many items did I knock off my home to do list? Was I being fair to myself? Investing enough in my family? Were my goals aggressive enough? Did I spend my time in all the right ways? Where was I supposed to be?
Anxiety, yes, but I’ve learned to call these lapses in confidence ‘needless’ anxiety. Though knowing the feelings are unnecessary, still accompany a very conscious effort to let go. I try to offer up the angst. I remind myself that I do everything for a reason.
Today I wondered if I tried to do too much? Had my strategies become inefficient?
Was I taking care of myself in the process? Did I find the joy in every day?
The thoughts started to flood and I knew I needed to move on. So, I read my ‘God In Every Moment’ calendar. I find every quote to bring calm and perspective to my day, regardless of the circumstance. I hoped for a quick fix of reassurance as I read April 8:
“Love God and accept where you are – it’s exactly where you’re supposed to be.”
It reaffirmed my faith and I accepted my Friday reward.
