I started the day aiming to finish everything I could at one store. I didn’t do that.

I left some for tomorrow.

Because I need time to myself.

The wife and kids weren’t here this afternoon because of band practice.

I came home to decompress a bit. I sat down and played Call Of Duty. It’s a stress reliever.

I’ve balanced my hours this weekβ€”roughly eight hours a day at work. I’ve had to force myself to leave and not just finish every activity available.

I’ve had this verse on my mind:

β€œTherefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” – Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Tomorrow’s work will be just that. Believe me, it will still be there when I show up.

This I know.

And right now, I am really at peace. It has taken me fifty-three years to find a balance in my soul, and I honestly believe I have.

The company won’t stop without you. Certain people will notice that the job didn’t get done to your standards. The ones who watch over and appreciate you will miss you, but they are few and far between.

In the end it’s a job. I’m grateful to have one. But it isn’t my whole life. There is so much more to life.

That’s it. That’s the post.
