One thing at a time

Today was the second time in two weeks that I sent a text message to the wrong person. The first message was to the right recipient but my reply included kisses at the end. Today’s message also had kisses at the end because I thought I was texting my husband but I wasn’t. Both times I had to quickly send apologetic replies because I wasn’t thinking.

At times to our detriment, women are habitual multi-taskers. We’re not doing anything unless we’re doing at least three things at once! You’re probably reading this, cooking dinner, and folding the washing. But something, if not everything, suffers.

So breathe. Breathe in. Pause. Breathe out. Close your eyes, and let the air fill your lungs. Rotate your shoulders and neck. Have a big stretch. Now focus on one thing. Whatever is most important. Other things can wait.

Galatians 6:4 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won’t need to compare yourself to anyone else.

Pay attention and you will be satisfied. I’ll leave comparing yourself to another blog…

Be amazing.
