You know the drill:
- You plan a vacation and look forward to it happily
- You then bitterly regret said vacation in the last few days before leaving because there is some unwritten, universal law that says everything at work and at home must go haywire right up to the time of departure
- You go on vacation anyway and (hopefully) have a good time
- Even on vacation, you cannot fully escape work pressures (one word: email)
- You return to work with a very, very small amount of vacation haze
- That post vacation haze evaporates so quickly on that first day back, you wonder whether you even took a vacation at all
Yes, that was yesterday.
That mere wisp of haze was burned through so fast, I now am dubious it ever existed, haha.
Today and for future days to come, I will try to focus on what I can control (which is very little), and remind myself of Philippians 4:8 (NLT):
“Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
That’s a tall order, especially for me, but I will try.
