So much has been swirling around in my head these past couple weeks, so much. I told JD that was my excuse for not blogging during the Spring Break and this past week. His response came with a southern smirk, “It’s time.” He’s right.
I am slowly learning that being balanced in life has little to do with actually juggling your priorities well, waking up early, time management techniques, and multitasking. It has a whole lot to do with saying, “I can’t”…and being really honest about it. No matter what is on your plate in life, there will always be things undone, unperfected, unmet, unrealized, unread, unwritten, forgotten, misplaced, un….whatever-ed. And that has to be ok, because we are finite. We have limits. We are fragile. And we have no need of a Savior if we can handle life all on our own.
Let that sit there for a bit.
Don’t get me wrong, its been hard to admit that lately, real hard. BUT, it is getting much easier realizing and saying, “I can’t” in this past month. It is much more freeing to say “I can’t”. It is much more REAL, right? And the Savior that took a chance on me died for the real me, not the “me” that everyone else perceives, right?
Try it. Be freed by it. Be healed by it. Then, thank the God that created you that it’s ok to be REAL.
Let's change gears - If you happen to be in the Lexington, KY area anytime soon, stop by Gold's Gym and ask for the most beautiful blond personal trainer they have on staff. Without hesitation, they will introduce to my wife, their newest personal trainer. I knew she could do it! She is on the road to being PT certified and ready to "bring the pain babee!"
Signing off, I leave you with my most recent reason to make me smile.
I dare you to watch the new Sherwood video and not smile the whole time. In fact, I will triple dog dare you. These guys are so down to earth, so humble, so fun, so creative, and so thankful for the opportunities they get. Enjoy.
From Wilmore, with love.
