The fatigue I feel doesn't take away from the deep gratitude I have for my life and the roles I play.
But I'm still so tired.
I was sharing about this with a friend recently and she immediately started talking about vegetables (not uncommon for her). Gradually, with each word she spoke, the conversation felt more and more sacred. She used asparagus and beets to confront the deeper parts of myself.
Vegetables are good for us, but it's possible to have too many.
Engagement in our lives is good for us, but it's possible to lose balance.
All of the women in me are tired. The wife, the mom, the sister, the daughter, the friend, the business owner, the coffee roaster, the gospel singer, the community member, etc.
And all of the women in me need a change.
