Because let’s be honest, when I’m tired and overwhelmed, I don’t always go where I should.
Instead, I find myself
At the avoidance place.
The distraction place.
The scroll-until-it-feels-better-but-it-never-does-for-long place.
The worry round in circles and back again, and still get nowhere far place.
The ‘what if’. . . place . . .
The ‘let’s see what everyone else is doing’, followed by the ‘why not me?’ place.
The buy to satisfy place.
The seeing-it-distorted-through-the-eyes-of-exhaustion place.
The stumbling in the dark, tripping, stubbing-toe place.
When where I need to be is
At the burden-borne place,
The He-understands-my-weakness place,
The he died in my place-place,
The ‘it is finished’ place,
The it-is-only-just-beginning place.
Became my place
Must. Not. Forget
