Overwhelmed

2363216190_b7896a01ba_bI haven’t been writing much lately, but I’m still thinking about writing. Always.

I’ve been feeling overwhelmed.

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by my own thoughts. All of the chaos, madness, must do/must have/must be here by 9am. It’s too much.

I make something out of nothing and that sends me on a spiral and then I do dumb things and keep making up more stories about what if this and what if that what, if I…

And then in an effort to breathe, I realize I am making it all up and I should just stop.

Stop telling myself the story that isn’t true, stop worrying about whether the story is true, stop worrying about things I can’t control. I can only be how I am in this moment and this moment and this moment. It’s so hard to remember when the world is piling things on and up. Breathe. It’s that simple.

  2. You write the way I sometimes feel, especially in the morning when I first wake. If I lie in bed just for a minute, my mind begins to tell the scary story. If I get going or write, then my mind surrenders for a bit and I can welcome the day and be thankful I woke up.
