Never Too Old . . .

So, after more than three months on Renewal, I am back at work (almost full-time this week). Already I am behind!?<#$%

The three months were so restorative and overall very restful, and already I am tired. What gives?

I think it is like a rubber band that, when stretched, expands, and then, when the stretching ends, returns more or less to its original shape. I am still overcoming old habits of placing undue stress on myself, and freaking myself out with the list of things I “have” to do.

So, today, I pray to return to my Renewal pattern and goals: prayer, not only in the morning, but during the day, and at night–not to mention, focusing only a couple of major things in a day, not all of them!

Renewal is not over, renewal is continuing. This old guy can learn new tricks.
