Feeling Overwhelmed?

I was.

And then I read this post this morning.

Ah, yes. A few deep breaths later and I was ready to take on my day. No longer was I the overburdened pack mule of all broken things in this world. No! I can take a minute, refocus, and continue on with proper perspective and direction.


Pack Mule

If you are feeling like you can't do it all, find freedom in knowing that you don't have to.

And for those of you who can do it all ...well... umm... keep it up.

So . . . if I'm hearing you correctly . . . I *don't* have to pick up the toddler-induced-items-strewn-about-haphazardly-living room floor?

This is *very* good news!

:D

Mmm, I am definitely ready to slack!

Angi, that's right: You don't have to... but after you've had a minute to collect yourself, it may be time to college those things so they aren't broken or cause injury <smile>.

MamaGeph, not sure of slacking is quite right, but it is closer to the truth <smile>.

Anonymous, you are most welcome. And, yes: Taking those few minutes can dramatically increase our joy in the journey. Thanks for stopping by to comment <smile>.

I can't do it all. That's why I grew 7 and 9 year olds. I do enough :)

Luke said...

<laughing> Hmm... that's a good idea <smile>.

Angie said...

Awww...thanks, Luke! :) I appreciate both the link and the post.

Luke said...

Angie, thank you for writing the inspiration and for stopping by <smile>.

And, Angi, I just realized that I had a huge typo... <grr> "collect" not "college"... of course, then I have redundancy in my words... <smile>
