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.
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!
