Yesterday I was inundated by amazing friends and family messaging me, and checking up on me as I left the sofa and returned to work. By the end of the day I think the word I had used the most was overwhelmed, followed by survived.

Why overwhelmed?

Various reasons…positive and negative… but mainly overwhelmed by everything that needed to be done.

This meant that by the time I got to work in the morning i was like an excited puppy, but by the time I got home I was exhausted and it was all I could do to heat up my dinner. In fact I had to make a conscious decision to heat up the dinner before I sat down as I knew that as soon as I sat down I would fall asleep.

This morning I woke up with that overwhelmingly overwhelmed sense again… brief morning text conversation with E and I was set on eating breakfast and taking it one step at a time – starting with walking out the door.

Yesterday it was foggy as I walked to work, I had no choice but to take one step at a time, I couldn’t see where I was headed. Today I had to almost put the fog up for myself.

Various things happened today that meant I had no choice but only go lesson by lesson, not planning too far ahead. It worked. I felt considerably more sense of enjoyment and achievement by the end of the day, and even went for a short slow run when I got home.

So the decision has been made…

I’ve got to overcome the overwhelming Mess! 

Well… in this season anyway

One step at a time!
