Begin to think of order …as a shape - the foundation - for the beautiful new life you are creating. - Sarah Ban Breathnach
- overwhelm with things to be dealt with
- fill beyond capacity
One afternoon recently I arrived home from work and my husband happily shared the highpoint of his day. He had received an unexpected cheque in the mail. My response? Gratitude? Delight? I am sorry to have to write that it was more of a 'That's nice dear', while on the inside I felt relief that it was a cheque and not something I would have to action. That same evening I took out some paperwork to complete and discovered it was due for submission five days earlier. How in the heck? I am usually much more switched on and have things completed on time. That same night I woke up just after 2.00 in the morning, mind racing, trying to sort out all the things I needed to organise and expedite. I remembered to pray. But my thoughts were too chaotic and my prayer became jumbled and rambling.
Relax dear reader. I have not entered the land of the permanently baffled. I have just simply become overwhelmed.
