It’s Day 10 of the Go to Bed Early Challenge and I’m still a work in progress, but I see how much progress has been made the last two weeks and I’m celebrating that — instead of focusing on the fact that I still have a lot of progress to make in the area of consistency.
Morning thoughts: It’s so easy for someone with a personality like mine to run people over and put productivity above relationships. I’ve done it many times in the past. I’d rather “get more done” than set aside My Plan in order to focus on going deep in a relationship and making space for someone who needs me to drop everything and just be there for them.
In the last few months, I’ve really committed to making relationships paramount… Opening my home and heart and life, even when it means that I my to do list and accomplishments may look less impressive.
Here’s what I’m learning: I’m finding so much more fulfillment in loving people well than I ever found in getting things checked off my list. It’s not as safe. It’s not as comfortable. But it’s a whole lot more rewarding.
