Doing It All…Not!

Do It All TodayToday’s Berthaism: You don’t have to do it all today!

I know Bertha’s whisper-shouting this one to me today…I’m just starting a major project…it should take 8 weeks…I’m on day 2 and I’m feeling overwhelmed. I’m not sure about you…but when I’m overwhelmed…I tend to procrastinate.

So today’s message reminds…me…us…that we don’t have to look at the big picture all the time…just look at the next piece in front of us…do that task…then tackle the next one.

LOL…she just added to it…You don’t have to do it all today…but you do have to do something!

Well…guess I’m off to take action…even a small one.

Jane…

I would love to hear how you take action when you’re feeling overwhelmed.

 

Elephants and Overwhelm…

Lately… I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed… school has started back… Jane Carrolland… for some reason… I seem to be taking on more writing projects… honestly… I have no idea how I’m going to do it all…

Bertha… laughed… as she reminded me… I’ll do it like eating an elephant… one bite at a time…

Yeah… I threw a shoe at her…

Then… she reminded me of a time when my girls were young… they were in two different school programs… two different dance classes… and… for some reason… I took on sewing smocked clothing for others… as well as smocking and sewing for my kids… I also worked part-time at a doctor’s office…

The funny thing is… I think I got the most done that year… that I ever did… I stayed organized… I stayed focused… and… I had some fun along the way…

Suddenly… I don’t feel so overwhelmed… just looking forward to the new opportunities…
