2013 was my year of resisting the paralysis of perfectionism, and this word served me well. I find it fascinating to note how often in the gospels Jesus withdrew to a quiet place in order to pray.
This year I hope to finish The Book, (and maybe even find a publisher for it?), finish the 1 Peter series and turn it into a self-published book, enjoy a holiday abroad with my family (without having a relapse?), keep in touch with local and international friends, be well enough to enjoy my boy’s birthday and Christmas celebrations. I do think you need to use your resources wisely and your strength and health being some of those resources. I know I say it often, but it’s just so lovely to be reading some posts from you lately!
When I wrote my scary-brave list of dreams for the year, I didn’t really believe that I would do so many of them. I loved getting under the skin of the books of Ruth and 1 Peter, and telling the truth sideways.


I tweeted and Facebooked my #3goodthings, and it does, it does make a difference finding those treasures in each day. I have a lot of sympathy for Sue Marsh, an amazing disability campaigner in the UK who has been writing and speaking steadily for 4 years, despite being very ill, and who decided to take a break because she is exhausted from it. It is something I naturally shy away from (by personality I prefer people and conversation to quiet and isolation), and I want to challenge myself to find life and vitality in the quiet places. You are rallying your strength and that’s found in time with God, quieting the noise and letting yourself come out refreshed again. As well as helping me think through my writing, I connected with a community of amazing women, all sharing their writing journey together. I blogged about disability cuts and the lack of ME treatment, and was overwhelmed by the response.
I want to do these things, but only if I can do them gently, without violence to my health or soul.


It’s bizarre how hard it is to rest, considering we spend so much of the day in bed, isn’t it?? I didn’t choose a word this year but balance always resonates with me for all of these reasons you mentioned. Please use your own judgement when choosing reading materials for yourself and your family.
It still doesn’t feel enough is being done, but I am thankful I was given a chance to be heard.
