Things have felt pretty on the go since I returned home from Candidate Orientation at the end of March. April was an especially stressful month, with being asked to resign as youth director and all. That was a bit of a shock. I had to choose between missions and youth ministry. Missions won. Honestly, I’m glad it did. If anything, I have even less free time that before and that is without having to leave the house.
My stress levels have also skyrocketed. Fundraising for international missions in Germany will do that. I have a tendency to push myself a little too hard. I over schedule my time. You would think I would have learned by now. But no, it always repeats and ends in a burnout. I can’t help it, there is just so much I want to do and learn. The issue is that I have no patience and what to learn it all NOW.
Combine all of this together, and you have one tired feeling bald guy. What I need is a few days off. Lucky for me I have Friday and Saturday off from the library. Might as well and take advantage of a 3 day weekend. Mind you, I will still be doing things but the focus isn’t fundraising. I need to do things to help me recharge. I will be working on a few courses as well as a few other things. I will likely be staying of social media, which has always been a challenge for me.
