It’s been a busy start to the year, in fact a huge start to the year. We are busier in our business than we have ever been, run off our feet actually, and it’s great. Though it has taken my just about full time job to more than a full time job. The blog is becoming busier as well, as new opportunities fall at my feet.
Then there is the new business The Builder and I are trying to get set up. It needs a week or two solid for us to really get it up off the ground.
I also have a brain jam packed with new ideas and new directions for my blog and the community it is building. We have our morning tea coming up, the first of many events I hope.
I have meetings every day this week, with new clients and contacts that will help me turn my dreams into something attainable. I am excited to share my passion with you, but before I can, I need to get past this feeling of total overwhelm.
I am finding that nothing is clear, that nothing is clean cut. Everything feels messy and out of control. Problems and issues are rolling in, over and over. My usual clear and concise thinking is out of balance, I am struggling to keep up.
I feel overwhelmed.
How am I going to move forward? I’m not really sure, first of all I’m going to concentrate on what I need to do to get through the day. I am going to concentrate on projects I can achieve. I am going to light a candle every morning and visualise my intentions for the day. I am going to have my lunch in the garden and not sitting in front of the computer, or in the car on the way to an appointment.
I am going to put myself first, just for a moment, so that I can continue to get through my ever growing list. I’m going to let some of the negative go from my life, and concentrate on the positive that surrounds me. I’m going to cuddle my cats, and play with my dogs, even if only for a moment.
Why am I sharing this with you today? Because I felt it important that you see that my life is not perfect, that we all struggle at times. That overwhelm can come at take the wind out of you at any moment, but it is possible to refocus and move forward.
I have a belief that success is the decision to move forward rather than get stuck. Sometimes that success takes a little longer to come by than other times, but the gentle movement forward with each step is the success I find inspiring in a day.
How is your week looking? Feeling overwhelmed? How do you get out of a rut?
