My name is Penny and I am an obsessive overworker. Ok there you go, that was my confession. But at the same time I strive to be an ever present approachable Momma. So I tend to go with the flow during the day, answer questions, teach this and that. Then spend family time in the evenings. Then when everyone goes to bed, I stay up. And I work on whatever I am needing to do. Then I am worn out during the day.
Around the first of the year I was hit with what appeared to be the beginnings of a sinus infection. But it just completely zapped me of all energy. So for a couple days I pretty much just slept. And caught up. And prayed and talked to the Lord. And we had the most interesting conversation. He said I was not taking good care of my temple (body), and that one cannot push that hard without problems. I have always been a go getter and am very productivity driven. But maybe just maybe I should let up and let Him take over more often. So I have. And I have been going to bed at a reasonable time. And let me tell you it has been hard. But I am doing it.
Crystal over at Biblicalwomanhood is going to encourage us and keep us accountable. Her main goal is to get up early and while I do that fine I am not my best if i don’t go to bed before midnight, so I am joining her challenge. I am going to give myself permission to stay up late one night per week and that is it. Keep checking back to see how I do 🙂 .
