When Motivation Takes a Vacation

I woke up today realizing that my usual motivated self could have just stayed in full jammies mode, doing nothing all day sounded like music to my tired ears. I thought how is it that my motivation just up and went on vacation. It packed up and just went without any warning, I mean really how rude.

I went to bed felling happy and ready to take on the world. My many plans that were in my head seemed so doable.  I smiled at some and thought of others as I cant wait to cross those ones off. I left them as plans falling asleep not realizing that upon waking I would be lacking my motivation.

Another time in my life I would have thought what is wrong with me? I am learning that some days my normal take on the word self is not there anymore. I am ok with just doing what I can, accepting what can’t be done and if I get the blessing of another day I can and will do better then.

My body that would be able to train for and run a marathon at times reminds me its ok to rest. I am not lesser than because I might need to reschedule somethings for another time. I now have compassion for others that I might have looked down upon for not being motivated. I somehow thought that REST was a four letter dirty word.

Rest is not a weakness. It is much-needed to enhance your life and brings peace. I take a lesson from the nature. I love the autumn, it is natures last celebration before the rest of winter.  In winter almost all is resting and getting ready for the new growth of spring and the full action of summer.

Today my motivation may be on vacation but it didn’t pack all its bags, I know it will be back. I will rest and be ready for its return.

Isaiah 26:3

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
