In the Philippines, Christmas shopping has started. Holiday decorations have started selling like hotcakes. Balikbayan boxes have been shipped on their way home.
My family will have a reunion this December and I have trips to plan! But no time for that now.
Time, and sleep. If only I could have both. These days they are both elusive. I may have overbooked myself. I may have bitten off more than I could chew.
I have a day job, and I teach. I am exhausted because I chose this schedule. I wish I cared less, but I don't. I can't. It's not in my nature.
Instead, I worry and am less productive because of it.
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? (Luke 12:25, NIV)
Knowing has never been my problem. I know everything - how to lose weight. How to clean my room. How to be happy. How to be productive. How to be efficient. I just don't do it.
Instead, I worry.
Time to change strategies.
