We have our long lists and our requirements.
We have the expectations of ourselves and of others.
We have the things we want to do for ourselves and the things that others want us todo for them.
We have the nonstop coming and going, the long waiting to get nowhere fast.
In the midst of all of this our minds and hearts become overwhelmed with the cares of this life.
When will it ever stop?
How are we able to sleep at night?
We can’t…at least not restfully…
The thoughts keep racing. We worry and fret about things that haven’t even happened yet. We aren’t even sure if they ever will.
So what should we do?
How do we stop ourselves from feeling overwhelmed and tired emotionally?
We have to STOP and take a deep breath. It will take some focus to do nothing else in that moment, but it is imperative to find a way to just breathe.
This is what I’m telling myself today.
I have a lot on my plate and to make sure that I don’t get overwhelmed, I have to remove somethings.
Before I do that I am going to take some time to rest and breathe.
I hope that you find encouragement in this as well and that you are able to do the same.
Remember…our hearts can only take so much…
Have fun in life, love what you do, run the race, kill the giants, but don’t forget to breathe…
