Under Water . . Overwhelmed!

Overwhelmed! Overwhelming insanity is engulfing me. I feel like the Wicked Witch of the West . . . “I’m melting . . . I’m melting”. It’s all good, though, that’s the thing. Abounding opportunities popping up and out like springtime buds. Nothing is ever all good or all bad, so the downside to this insanity is two-fold: where to start and how keep the focus (yes . . pay no never-mind to that fleeting squirrel or butterfly!)
Slow down, slow down, slow down . . . stay conscious with each choice, with each decision to do or not to do something; to be or not to be something. Is the choice I’m making, at any moment, in support of my ultimate end, my desired goal, or is it just a ping-pong ball distraction? If it’s the latter, let it go or put it on my Dream Planner to contemplate at a later date, then move on to the next choice.
Serenity, serenity, serenity .. . accept the truth that there are only so many hours in my day (and night). Sure, people are going to feel slighted by me, neglected by me, or disappointed in me; yet, my knowing (in my mind, heart, and soul) that I did what I could and was all that I could be . . . to the best of my ability in that particular moment . . . has more strength than any judgement made by others. I will prevail!
Note to self: Get a cup of tea brewing and hang in there!
