Priorities- Friday Rambling- Wk 5

There hasn’t been a quiet moment this week. If not in life- in my head.

I’m not sure what to call that. It may be “overthinking,” but can you do that if you’re not an over-thinker? The term has always felt like it involved an obsessive personality, one who carefully and methodically descends their thoughts on a singular topic.

I’ve had multiple topics per day that have caught my attention. One night this week, I didn’t sleep a wink because my mind wouldn’t shut off. That’s only happened to me two other times in my life.

And the next day, my tired thoughts resembled “The Scream,” by Edvard Munch. (Colorful, but clearly frustrated).

Today, my mind is consumed by a surgery. A loved one will have a serious operation and I can think of little else. Not this Friday habit of mine, not the work day, nothing…

I’m trying desperately not to worry, because it doesn’t constructively add to the fray. But, worry keeps knocking…asking to be invited in.

It’s always been fascinating to me how priorities can change in an instant. How you believed your day, month…life would be different and something comes along to rearrange your world in an instant.

I love you, friends! ❤ Have a scream-free weekend!

  1. I’m the same as you. Mike though never stresses and leaves everything to God. I really want to do it but I’m always taking it back and trying to control it.
    Until my heart lets go then I have peace.
    Let go Let God. Easier said then done.

    1. So true! Although, I sometimes wonder if so much has happened in my life as a way for God to test my resolve. I wonder if He’s checking in: “O.K., how about now, Toni, are you going to give me everything? Do you trust me completely, now?” Like you said: not always easy to do, but so amazing and peaceful when you can. ❤


  2. I’m sorry I’ll be praying for whoever is having surgery. I know what you mean when your mind is racing at night you can’t shut it off. When it happens sometimes I try to listen to calming music or anything but sometimes it doesn’t help. All we can do just take one day at a time. Love you sweetie.
