“I have lived a long life and had many troubles, most of which never happened.“ -Mark Twain. ‼️ The majority of the pain and suffering in our lives is caused by the unnecessary drama that we create. ⭐️ Life is but a dream. Don't turn it into a nightmare. . ===. The most common complaints about overwhelm: . There's not enough time. When we're forced to do something, suddenly the time is there. Which means it's there all the time, but we've just chosen to limit ourselves by believing it isn't. . Show some respect . You can create anything you desire, but you have to truly want it. . If you act like time isn't important, that it's fully worth wasting and disrespecting, you're not in alignment with what you say you want so you're gonna have a hard time getting it. . Keep your friends close and your enemies closer . What do you find yourself doing instead of doing what you're supposed to be doing? Once you know what your favorite distractions are, you can build up a good defense against it. . We get into such bad habits that half the time we don't even realize what we're doing. . Chunk it down. Look at tasks separately so that larger tasks become manageable . Our brains go into overwhelm when we try to do it all in one big block of time. There's too much to do . Watch your mouth: stop talking about how busy you are . ⭐️ Focus on what you enjoy about what you do and the spaces in between the doing instead of feeling weighed down by it all. . Get some help. A lot of times we are so tangled up in our own lives that we can't see something that's totally obvious to someone else. . Get into reality . Sometimes we take on more than we can chew because we think we have to do it all. Or that the world will fall apart if we don't do everything. . Make a to-do list to chunk our the tasks: . What needs to happen right now? . What can wait? . Put these on 2 separate lists. Hide the Wait list. . what are the big important tasks on the Now list? . what are the little ones? . ⭐️ Do what you can do in joy, instead of trying to do it all in misery. . Delegate or die . Figure out which tasks you hate doing or have always been bad at or just don't have time to do and find someone else to do them. . Help is all around us, sometimes receiving it is simply a matter of looking at it differently, or not giving up so easily. . Remember that you are # 1. . Put your priorities first. Other people's needs can occupy several lifetimes' worth of our attention, and if you let them, they will. . I am exhausted . ⭐️ The belief that taking time off will cause your entire life to collapse is not only unhealthy, but it's arrogant. . Making time to do the things that inspire you should also be a priority because what's the point of living life without them? . Love Yourself. You're doing an awesome job.
