taking the time

by Amy

sometimes the amount of directions i set myself up to be pulled, it’s overwhelming.

sometimes i wake up in a panic about my to-do list.

sometimes i don’t know what task to check off first.

sometimes it is embarrassing.

sometimes people get mad at me.

sometimes i don’t know how to please everyone, even though i really, really want to.

sometimes, of all the people who are needing my attention and all the conflicts of time that run through my head, i have to just say …”this time?  it is for you”.

i never regret it.
