What Should I Do Today?

There’s this song that I love by Bruno Mars called The Lazy Song. It describes me to a tee by the time Friday rolls around each week. Like most folks, I exert a great deal of energy during the week, so by the time Friday gets here, I’m tuckered out.

I try to write something every day, but there are times when I can’t even write — not because I have writer’s block, I just can’t put together a simple sentence.  So a compound sentence or compound complex sentence is out of the question. That’s when I know I just need a break–a little time to do nothing at all.

What I typically do is grab the remote and watch all of my DVR’d stuff:  Y&R, Scandal, Empire, and random shows from HGTV. I’m usually multi-tasking too — chatting on Twitter, lurking on Facebook, and shopping online. Seems like the only time I’m truly focused on one thing is when I’m writing.  I take it very seriously because I want to do it well.  I truly try to do everything well, but I miss the mark on a couple things, but I’ll keep those to myself and sip on this tea.

Something else I like to do when I’m not writing is read, listen to music, and sing a little. Well I actually sing a lot — usually when I’m cooking or doing other domestic duties. For the most part though, when I chill out, I focus on whatever makes me happy.  If I want to get my nails done and get a massage, that’s what I do. As they say, ” Happy wife…happy life.” Today (and every day), I choose to be happy.

I started this blog as a means of chronicling my journey of Servant Leadership, but I believe that it has taken on a deeper purpose. It has become a ministry tool. As visitors read about my every day experiences as seen through a spiritual lens, they are fed with the word of God. My hope is that you find encouragement here, and when you do, please share it with me. Encouragers need encouragement too.

  1. I loved this post! That was my Friday as well! I will try to make this weekend more productive with the writing. Sometime you just need a mental break and simply sing Bruno’s song!
