Sometimes I don't write for weeks at a time. Then sometimes I post two in one day. I'm unpredictible like that.
So I was talking to a friend on Facebook the other day. She said something pretty profound that has been making me think a lot. I tend to think way too much, so this isn't a newsflash...but anyway...
She told me she once read a book by a Catholic author I'm not sure of...but he outlined something that changed my friend's life. He said to maximize our potential we must feed 4 areas daily: spiritual, physical, intellectual, and relational. Each area is just as important as the others.
My mind was already overcomplicating things, but my friend stressed the importance of keeping it simple. She even has a backup plan for those days she's just too tired. If she planned to read her Bible she has the backup of listening to a devotional podcast. One day relational may be as simple as an encouraging text. The point is to plan these areas and be intentional about it.
I love this and am trying to implement it. Physical is the hardest right now with my bad ankle, but that's an excuse. I'm working on it! I will try to write another day about my progress. Prayers are appreciated!
