As I searched the definition for weary, one caught my eye.
Impatient or dissatisfied with something (weary of).
This often defines my feeling of weariness rather than the more common one: physically or mentally available, exhausted by hard stopexertion, strain; fatigued.
For some reason, I’m finding myself impatient and dissatisfied more often than I am physically or mentally exhausted by hard work…the kind that leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment, a job well done.
Instead, it seems that more and more of my life is full of interruptions as I try to go about living. There are mounds of 1/2 completed tasks that I never get back to and the feeling that nothing is ever finished!
It’s not the weariness at the end of the day that leaves me feeling like I worked hard, that I completed a task and have a sense of accomplishment.
It’s more like I lie down at the end of day and think, “Oh my, I have hardly made any progress on my work for today! Will I ever make a dent in my list of things to be done?”

Part of the problem is just telling myself there is too much to be done, it is hopeless to get it done so I won’t start. That does NOT work well at all! The weariness continues and I stay dissatisfied…and weary.
Come to me,all who labor and are heavy laden,and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,for I am gentle and lowly in heart,and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy,and my burden is light.Matthew 11:28-30
