Some online friends are having the kind of day we all have and wish we didn’t. I responded to one of them with a message that may be useful to you too, so I decided to post it to everyone:
I hear you. When I get overwhelmed by the big picture, I find that it helps me when I stop and take several deep breaths, and start focusing on the small picture for awhile. That gives my sub-conscious brain a chance to keep working on a possible answer while I distract my overly-active conscious brain with a chore, or with the beauty of a sunset or silhouette. Then, often when I least suspect it, my sub-conscious provides the answer. I just have to give it a quiet space to do so.
In my case, if my mind feels too cluttered, I also unclutter another part of my life–such as my desk. It makes me feel better and gives me more room to breathe, think, and to simply be.
You have such a bright spirit that you almost can’t help but shine on others. Keep shining. Your own light will help guide your way.
