So many phrases and thoughts popped out at me, inspiring me, comforting me, and teaching me. However, I am choosing to focus on just one tonight and then will try to practice the concept. He counseled, "watch for the stress indicators in yourself and in others you may be able to help. As with your automobile, be alert to rising temperatures, excessive speed, or a tank low on fuel. When you face “depletion depression,” make the requisite adjustments. Fatigue is the common enemy of us all—so slow down, rest up, replenish, and refill. Physicians promise us that if we do not take time to be well, we most assuredly will take time later on to be ill."
Recently I have been up far too late working on various projects and the fatigue is catching up to me. I know I felt it yesterday with my lack of patience and discouragement. So, tonight I am going to keep this short, recommend you read his talk, and then I'm going to go to bed so I can refill my tank keep my engine temperatures lower and my pistons running more smoothly. I believe he has given us wise counsel to help us thrive. He said take time to be well, or we'll have to take time to be ill. I would also add, take time to thrive so you can do more than just survive. Good night, everyone!
