A dad tells his son to mow the lawn while he runs errands.
Son, I expect that lawn to be done when I get home.
Dad gets home and, of course, the lawn isn’t mowed.
But, Dad, don’t get mad. I thought a lot about mowing the lawn. I prayed about mowing the lawn. Dad, I got some committees started. There’s the mower committee and the edging committee and we’re looking into what to do with the cuttings…
And somewhere around here the dad yells, Just mow the flipping lawn!
While The Pastor was sharing it in regards to being obedient to God when He calls us to do something, I think it fits how I approach things when it comes to my health and wellness.
Here’s my thought process:
I know I need to make changes and do something different to get healthier.
Well, first – obviously – I need to do some research. A few books, some online research, at least a dozen new blogs to follow and prepare a couple of blog posts, add a few weeks worth of recipes to a new Pinterest board…
Research and knowing what you’re doing isn’t a bad thing.
As long as you end up doing something with them.
And sometimes, it’s okay to just go mow that flipping lawn and just do it.
What are you struggling with right now? What do you need to just do?
