Being able to work for myself is a blessing.
And sometimes a curse.
What I struggle with most is truly setting down the work. Switching my brain off at the end of the day to focus on my family. Letting rest and peace and quiet fall.
My brain races. Ideas pop, deadlines flash, iPhone beckons. Just one more email, one last scroll through instagram, one last tweet.
I recently started carrying this book around with me to search for moments of peace in my day. A few pauses to reset and maybe refocus a little. The other day I came across two prayers for the evening hour that spoke of handing over the day in order to be fully present in the joy of the evening.
Handing over the day.
As I begin the week, this is my evening prayer. That I may hand over each day, and let the work fall away. That I may be fully present for the joy that evening brings.
Do you struggle with letting work go at the end of the day?
