|There are a couple of things about living life on life’s terms that get me into trouble. At various times, it can seem like my life is just one huge blur of rushing from one activity to another. Then there are the times when I will want to do, or think I need to do, five or six different things all at once. Intellectually, I know it is impossible for me to do all of these things at once. But I try anyway. I juggle time, schedules, and tasks. I rush from one hurried activity to another. Then I find myself in such a state of confusion it feels as though my head is going to split open. At this point I become a living example of the poster child for stress. And, I also am sabotaging my recovery. It does not matter if my recovery is in its infancy or well-aged. At those times of confused frenzy, I am sabotaging my recovery.When I find myself in this state, it would be good for me to remember:
An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth.
Half of our life is spent trying to find something to do
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change,
The courage to change the things that I can,
God is my Time Clock. God is my Scheduler.
