Overwhelmed

I have been feeling overwhelmed the past couple of days.

I feel as though I have taken on too much…at work and at home. Nothing is getting a hundred percent of me. I feel as though I am not even giving seventy percent to anything.

Home or personal…class –ugh! I signed up for a couch to 5k…feeling completely defeated as my hips are killing me today. I should have been at practice last night but instead took a bath. Class…ya not currently in the mood which isn’t helping.

Work…too many things coming at once and I actually feel trapped. I am able to do my job but feel as though I can’t keep up with what is coming at me (not able to do what needs to get done at the best of my ability).

Too much right now…trying to breathe.

Blessings.

New Year Plan

For the past two years, I have blogged everyday.  It was a Passion Planner goal, and I was successful at it.  I have gained 241 new followers (began with 7 in January 2017)…thank you.  Crazy for me to think that so many of you actually want to read my crazy writing.

Thank you again!

Most days I love blogging, and coming up with new things to post about.  Most of the time I blog one to two days for the week ahead.  Or I post about things that have been completed or done in the past (like trips or travel).  I am bothered by instant blogging as I don’t think I can do that with my schedule and anxiety.

I am taking a class again this semester towards my AA.  Only one class a semester and if I only do two classes in 2019 I will be okay with that.

What I keep coming back to is that I am enough – right now.  That work, taking classes or stressing over any of those things will not make me a better person.  If I stress over the event itself how does that benefit anyone especially me.

In Oprah’s January 2019 magazine issue, Kacey Musgraves is quoted “Not every pebble is a boulder.  It’s a good reminder, because I can easily sweat the small stuff.”  -as her best piece of advice.

That statement is so true for me.  I sweat the small stuff now, so I don’t need to add any.  But how do I do that?  I have to remind myself daily that I am ENOUGH.  That brings me back to the blog.  I am not sure I will be able to maintain blogging every day.  It is a hope, but not realistic for me.  I will do my best…

I come back to this: MY word for 2019—ENOUGH.  I am enough at work, at school, blogging, as a Mom, friend, wife.  In all things I am enough.

Happy New Year, and many blessings to you and your families.
