I’m going to share with you EXACTLY how I’m feeling today.
I have been bogged down with the overwhelming feeling of being … overwhelmed. Add to that a healthy dose of anxiety.
I feel like I am spread so thin. I don’t know if it’s because I actually AM spread thin, or if I need to work on getting even MORE organized. But I feel like I have a long list of to-do’s, a long list of people to catch up with and visit, and a relationship that I also want to make sure I devote enough attention to.
The funny thing is … I also want to work more. I want to teach and coach more and have more projects that are a labor of love.
I wrote down a to-do list of only the day’s tasks but what is heavily weighing on me is that I keep missing time with friends and family – whether it’s because of work or a migraine (this happened recently), I just feel like I am not doing enough and not being in enough places at once. I am overwhelmed with guilt. And I find myself in a place where I do not know how to create balance.
This drives me up the wall because I want to help others create balance. But let’s face it, I can’t always walk the talk, hard as I may try. One thing I am doing is taking action and doing something purely for myself to help manage the stress that I create.
Action Step One: I made an appointment for acu-pressure this afternoon because I know that always helps me calm down and see the world through clear eyes and a clearer mind.
