“Overwhelmed”

Life can be truly amazing. And just when it’s great, it can take a turn for the worst, just like that! We live in a society that knows just how far to push our buttons. From the moment we leave our house to go to work we encounter traffic, someone may cut you off, there’s an accident and now you’ll have to call your boss and let him/her know you won’t be making it on time. Just like the roller coaster analogy, as our emotions. Some of us may experience the feelings of being overwhelmed more than others. You may feel overworked and underpaid, misguided, let down, taken advantage of, misunderstood, etc., etc. As humans, we feel the need to control every single aspect of our lives. If you’re like me, one of the things you may struggle the most with is letting go.

Now, I’d love to sit here and tell you how you can rid yourself of being overwhelmed, but sadly, I haven’t mastered that quite yet. What I can tell you is what’s been helping me accept things better as they come, and control my reaction to situations as they come. As I’ve mentioned in my prior blogs, meditation is by far my #1. As for me, guided meditations seem to help me the most, especially when I’m feeling overwhelmed and can’t seem to clear my head on my own. #2 is Canvas painting. Painting can be extremely soothing and therapeutic. It is here where your mind is required to focus on just one thing, and that, is the painting right in front of you. The time can pass me by without any cares in the world. #3 is reading. Find something that interests you; or maybe something that you’ve never considered reading, but you’re just drawn to. Reading can also be very relaxing. And last but not least, music. Music is therapeutic in so many ways. It can make you happy or sad, trigger an old memory, or make you want to get up and dance!98ce3bc239f1683aad34d8e5f0eacb4dTake some time to reflect on what’s most important in your life at this moment. What are you thankful for? What do you have in your life right now that you couldn’t possibly live without? Meditate on the possibilities of making things better just one step at a time. Don’t give yourself any more than you should handle (even if you think you can). Remember that no one out there has power over you unless you give them that power, through every hardship, there is a lesson to learn, and to every negative thought that is running through your head reminding you just how weak you are, remind them that you don’t need them and they are cancelled. We are way tougher than we give ourselves credit for. Someone very wise once told me, whenever you feel like giving up, just remind yourself that through it all, you’re still here! Don’t let frustration knock you down, because when you finally succeed, the struggle will be all worth it in the end.

    • I’m so glad it can help. We all go through this, it’s all in how we choose to deal with it that will determine if it goes smoothly or more difficult😊❤

"As writers and dreamers, we may never fit in (what they call) normality. Who cares? You and me, fulfilling old legends, we stay awake in each other’s dreams. We live for ever and a day in each other’s stories. We share memories of things that never happened. You and me. That’s the level of faith given upon our entwined souls!"
