One thing I’m absolutely sure of is that when overwhelmed, we all withdraw and nothing happens.
I had a full dosage of this recently. I have been away doing a 4 days Workshop and one on one consultation with people dealing with fear and energy problems. When I got back home I was met with a variety of chores that needed to be taken care of.
Needless to say that before I knew it, I found myself recoiling and withdrawing. I noticed that by the middle of the week I had completely shut down and became very uptight.
So I did what I felt urged to do. I decided to take a day of lazying around. This I did by chilling out and refusing to go anywhere or do anything which required too much of an effort. I listened to music, played with our cats, and thoroughly enjoyed the autumn weather outside, by taking some walks in our beautiful garden. All in all, a fruitful and most enjoyable day.
When I got up this morning, I felt my energy surging back. Now I’m ready to take on the world again. As my mind cleared up, I felt new ideas and inspiration being born. The feeling of being overwhelmed have subsided and nothing seems too much to face anymore. So here I am updating my blog, finishing some other writings and preparing my Seminar program for 2006.
To think that yesterday, all these would have felt overwhelming to me.
It’s certainly a wondrous life! I never fail to marvel at how simple life really can be to manage, if one focuses on the issues of the moment.
