Leave Space at the Edges

I’m a person who tries to fit in 61 minutes into one hour. I feel that by streamlining jobs I can achieve more activities. This means I sometimes get overtired and have to rest.

Yesterday I had been condemned for not being able to help a particular person which made me somewhat upset as I try to do everything.

But this morning I met a reverend lady who spoke words of wisdom to me. She knew little about me so could not have been issuing a warning. We had been talking about how we liked to help people and listen to their problems. She then said ‘Try to leave space at the edges.’ By which she meant we should leave a bit of time and energy for some task which we might divinely be asked to do. Wisdom indeed.
