Have you ever come across a line in a book, or a song, or a movie that shifted your entire perspective?
In a recent issue of Gather magazine, Women of the ELCA executive director, Linda Post Bushkofsky, wrote: “When I was in my 20s and 30s, self-care seemed unnecessary. I thought I could do it all and never run out of steam.”
You mean I, a woman in her 30s, cannot do it all? I will run out of steam? Sometimes the world gives you more than it seems like it should, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Sometimes life is hard.
For that, I’ve found another helpful quote: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35).
