Sometimes I feel like my life is spent rushing from one task to another, never really able to complete anything. My life is so often dictated by the next emergency, the next urgent request, the next appointment we're running late for. And I'm tired.
It's been a busy week. And I can't even really do a "Yay, it's Friday" happy dance because there is an even busier week on the horizon.
But part of this lesson we're trying to learn, this life we're trying to live, this radical simplicity we claim to be growing towards is intentionality. It's about doing things on purpose, with purpose. It's about serving with joy instead of running around like a chicken with it's head cut off trying to cross as much as humanly possible off today's to-do list.
As I contemplated this I remembered posts I'd read, like this one and this one. Wash your bowl. I can do that.
So today's task isn't some grand project. I'm not emptying out any cupboards or packing stuff up for the thrift store. I'm not swearing off my dishwasher for good. I'm just washing my bowl. I'm mindfully completing one task before moving on to the next. I'm clearing my sink and my counter because physical clutter is distracting and exhausting, and then I'm moving on to the next task with that same mindfulness, intentionality, and thankfulness for this hectic, busy, beautiful life I've been given!
Have a fabulous weekend. And Happy Friday!
