Yesterday I attended a meeting where the topic of feeling overwhelmed was brought to the table for discussion. As I listened, I thought about what has worked for me. When I had the opportunity to share, I shared a slogan. First things First.
First things First gives me the permission. The permission to step back and examine what is out of my control, what is in my control and what I need to let go of now.
First things first gives me hope. Gives me hope through the serenity prayer, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things that I can not change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference”.
Riddle: How do you eat an elephant? Answer: One bite at a time.
By taking an inventory of what is out of my control, what is my control and what I need to let go of I am able to create a plan. By creating a plan I am able to manage my feeling overwhelmed. Through managing what I can do, I am able to honor my thoughts and feelings, while looking for solutions. Solutions that will help me to manage feeling overwhelmed.
Solutions that will empower my life and well-being.
