Overwhelm: When you make the unhelpful decision to stop breathing, lose perspective, and forget you’re in control of your life.
Thank you Jen Sincero for this.
I talk about overwhelm a lot and I truly believe it a big reason why a lot of us just don’t take action.
Its pretty easy to see why, with the definition that Sincero gives.
My goal is to help women ditch the overwhelm so that they CAN take action.
We can do this first and foremost by just breathing. Slow down and figure out what you are truly feeling. Sit with your feelings and be okay with where you are right now.
Next, don’t lose perspective! You are doing the best you possibly can and the fact that you are even thinking of change puts you ahead of the curve. Remember, don’t compare your chapter 1 to another woman’s chapter 20. . .it is all relative.
Last, don’t ever forget that you are in control. You are the only one that can take the first step. Stop waiting for the perfect time, by doing this you are releasing control and you and I know damn well that perfect is never going to come.
Let’s kill overwhelm!
Breathe, don’t lose perspective, and remember you are in control!
