When I was a little girl that is what my dad said each time he pulled up to the gas station. He sounded so cool when he said it that I would imitate that phrase when he wasn't looking.
The question is "Do I imitate the action now?" Moms tend to be givers. We give until our gas tank is beyond empty. Then we feel overwhelmed, taken for granted and take it out on others. Maybe it is just me.
We need to fill 'er up with regular~regularly. What are you doing this week to fill up your emotional gas tank? I hope you put some thought into it and intentionally seek out rest, comfort and relaxation. I used to watch MASH back in the early 80s. The army knows that even in the midst of war the soldiers need some R & R in order to stay safe and focused.
Other than my daily quiet time with God, here is what I am doing to have some R & R. Today I am meeting my husband for lunch at Subway while the kids are at school. Tonight I am going to Zumba class. Tomorrow I will go swim laps. In the evening I will go to Weight Watchers. Weds I have class but in the morning I am meeting a friend for coffee. Thursday I go to Guts and Butts Class. Friday I am attending an Attachment Workshop. Exercise and time with adults are an important parts of filling 'er up for me.
Have a healing week!
