I do too much...

Today was/is one of those days where I feel like I do waaaayyyyyy too much.

Ever have one of those days? A day where you think to yourself, "how do I have any hair left?" Seriously, today was the stressful type that I thought I was about to either

A. Pull out my hair in frustration


B. It would fall out from stress.

Work is CRAZY right now for me.

Which while I like my job I don't currently LOVE it.

Probably because apparently the consensus is that I CAN do it ALL.

Because they keep giving me work, and giving me work.

Yet take nothing away.

Which don't get me wrong it's great job security but at the end of the day when I feel like I'm not really making a dent in it, it's well FRUSTRATING!

So I know that it's just a job and all of that.  And I know that at the end of the day I do get to go home. 

But do you ever see that transcend into your personal life? 
Do you ever see yourself taking on too much?
Do you ever have to stop and just take time to breathe?  Take time to focus on what's important?
I wish I could say I didn't have to do that.  That I didn't allow myself to get too busy to read my Bible, to pray like I should, to study as much as I know it would be of benefit.

But more often then not I say yes to too many things, things that aren't bad things - things that aren't wrong.  But they are still things, and yes there are times that some of those things do draw me closer to who He when I'm "working" in the photography stuff, and I can see God's beauty shining in the eyes of a child or in the flowers of a garden. 

However not saying NO sometimes takes me away from Him,  because I get home tired, worn out and just plain exhausted.

So today I challenge you, put down the computer, walk away from the blog or anything thing that could be a distraction.  Start saying No to things and Yes to Him. 
Start making time now for Him.
