I know stopping right now may not seem like a good idea, but believe me it will be worth it. I am not talking about quitting. I am talking about taking a minute to breath and breath deeply. I mean taking a weekend to spend time with friends and family when everything in you keeps saying….”go, go, go and keep going.”
This weekend I took time to hang out with friends and family and I am glad I did. For a few minutes I felt guilty because I have so much to do, but in reality I did not have a lot to do physically. I have a lot to do mentally. I have problems to solve, deadlines to meet, bills to pay and projects to start. The problem I was having is that I have so much to do and I was feeling really overwhelmed.
The weekend is almost over and I still have to do everything I mentioned however the anxiety is gone and I feel like my brain is rested. Lol. WE HAVE TO STOP! Stop to think, pray, meditate or just breath. Sometimes I just need to acknowledge that the problems are there and I just don’t have the answers yet. It is ok to not have the answers. I can not tell you how many times in the past that I did not have the answers but then something will happen or an idea will just pop into my head. This usually happens after I stop trying so hard. But it is a funny dance that I have with the universe. It seems that I have to give it my all at first and then get frustrated at not getting all the results I wanted and then I mentally and emotionally surrender and “voilà” the answer or solution shows up. I have an idea…why don’t I just give it my all and the skip over being frustrated and be patient and wait for the answer or solution. You know what….I think I will do that right now:) Have a rocking week!
