Some people are “on” all of the time. They’re always energetic. They’re always ready to go out and do things. They’re jumping off of the walls, they’re talking a mile a minute—it leads you to wonder if they pump energy drinks through their veins from a freak blood transfusion accident!

But you can’t stay young forever. All the time becomes some of the time, yet they still try to keep at it. As time passes, some of the time may eventually become none of the time, all because they failed to take care of themselves.

Why would anyone want to keep doing things until they burn out? It seems completely illogical to keep fighting a fight when you know it’s slowly killing you. There has to be a reason behind it all! Maybe it’s:

Whatever your reason is, you’re not doing yourself any good! I brought a bunch of work home with me today, thinking that I could sort it all out and get a little more ahead in all the things I need to do on the job — but plans can quickly change on you. With a sudden call into church to help run the soundboard for an event and being sleepier than I originally thought I was, it made for more random jotting of ideas than really making any progress in what I was doing.

But I won’t get all up in arms about it—there’s only so much you can do. Only so much energy in our systems. The more you push your limits, the more you’ll find that you cannot pull it off the next time. I got injured in dodgeball last week, and thinking that I could stretch it out and keep going, I sustained a knee injury that hasn’t yet gone away. The more I try to balance my work and personal lives at the cost of my sleeping hours, the less effective I think and the worse my performance.

No matter how hard you try, it’s a dance you can’t keep up forever. So I’ll wrap up this day, wrap up this entry, and get some rest. Tomorrow is another day, filled with challenges and issues — and I’ll need all the energy I can get.
