Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked

Ain’t no rest for the wicked….

Oh, but how I wish there were. Maybe then my kids would sleep.

I’ve had so many people come up to me lately and ask how I’ve bounced back so quickly. How I can get my appendix taken out in such a slice and dice way and get back to working out within those following weeks. How I can have surgery again two days ago and still be up and out and about.

Let me break it down for you….monthly tropical vacations.

& by tropical vacations I mean getting sunburnt at my son’s t-ball game while telling my oldest not to fall out of the tree.

{Sigh}

Rest used to be my enemy & honestly it still sometimes is. I mean how can I rest when I have a mile long to do list and a house that never stays clean? My biggest issue that I have when it comes to rest is that while I’m sitting there all I can do is think about all of the things that need to get done. Sound familiar?

I’ve started to break my rest into times though. I’ll do things that need to get done for one hour and then I’ll give myself 30 minutes to do whatever I want and I just continue to do this back and forth all day.

Find things that excite you to do during your 30 minute “breaks.” You wanna color? Color the best damn picture we’ve ever seen. You wanna cook? Cook the best damn meal you’ve ever made! {Or ruin it and order pizza.} You wanna smoke cra… ehhh, better not.

For reals though, do what makes your soul happy, & REST.
