Feeling overwhelmed is a TRAP, a tricky one.
When we’re overwhelmed, we see all that needs to be done and say, “That’s too much. I can’t do it. So instead, I shall do nothing”.
Feeling overwhelmed occurs when we say, “I am already too busy so I can’t do that and now all is pressing in on me and I can’t do anything”.
And the acts that are ours to do keep piling up and pulling on us.
And we keep resisting.
And stress and pressure build up.
Feeling overwhelmed leads to feeling stuck, and both are an illusion.
How simple those things that overwhelm us actually become when we release the feeling and return to the rhythm of our lives!!
When we say, “Yes, I need to make that phone call, do that task”.
How simple the task becomes, how simple life becomes.
What’s bothering you that needs to be done?
What’s pulling on you?
What’s causing you to feel overwhelmed and maybe stuck, too?
Make a list.
Put your list aside, and begin by taking action one by one.
Then watch as life unfolds.
One act at a time, one thing at a time, all that needs to be done will get done.
The stress will disappear, and you’ll feel back on track.
You’ll be given the ability, power, and guidance to do all that is on your path to do.
Begin simply, quietly, by acknowledging feeling what you need to.
Do what you want to do without hurting others.
It’s your mind which plays this “feeling overwhelmed” game.
Life is a sweet simple source of joy.
