“I can’t do this, Mom! It’s too full. There’s not enough room for everything.” I looked at the magnetic board overflowing with characters. When Jonah was trying to put every single piece on the board, he was right. There wasn’t enough space.
And it got me thinking.
This is how my life is too. When I try to do every single thing, there’s not enough space.
I explained to Jonah that it might be more fun if he just picked a few of his favorite pieces, and put those on the picture. They would have enough room to shine in the picture, and he would have more fun.
The same is true for my life. If I pick just a few of my favorite things, and leave space, those things shine, and I have more fun.
