STONECREST (5:06pm) – It’s Wednesday evening, and in this moment – for the past 10 years – I’ve been prepping to deliver Charlotte’s 5:30pm news. Reading stories, answering the phone, checking with sources, chatting with our producers, reporters, my co-anchors, and putting on makeup. (often all at the same time)

Maybe that’s why in this moment, I am struggling with doing JUST ONE thing at a time. I’m reading my bible (2 Corinthians 4), answering text messages, and writing a blog. I’m resisting the urge to return an important phone call. I am a chronic, multi-tasker. Am I the only one?

I’ve been advised that it’s time for me to “just be.” Who’s advising me on this? My husband, my counselor, and I think God is, too. Psalm 46:10 says “Be still and know that I am God”. I’d love to hear your advice on how to do this. For now, I’m sitting at the bookstore and I’m going to try to stop doing three things at once. I may implode. Maybe not. But it will feel like it.
