I feel like I’ve been making this face a lot lately. My “ack” face. My “hurry up and get it done” face. My “just give me twelve more hours in a day and I know I’ll be fine” face.
And believe me….it ain’t pretty.
My to-do list has officially taken on a life of its own. And just like Will Smith in any alien movie (or robot or zombie movie, for that matter), for every one thing I take down…three more suddenly appear to take its place. And on and on it goes, until once again I find myself back… well, at ack.
I know I should just breathe. Take it one thing at a time. And after all, tomorrow is another day.
But somehow that just doesn’t make me feel any better. Because, honestly, sometimes we really do just need to let ourselves feel overwhelmed and be ok with that.
Even if it’s scary.
Even if it ain’t so pretty.
Even if it’s only with a refrigerator magnet.
Sometimes you just have to say out loud and for everyone to hear, “World….Today I feel overwhelmed.”
And y’know what… I’m ok with that.
