For Friday.. If You Happen to Be Feeling Overwhelmed (Like Me)


Two weeks ago, I was all set to write an amazing post about how great being back at work was, and how I function SO much better in routine*.  Those things are absolutely still true; BUT, the last two weeks have been a lot harder, and I'm feeling pretty buried (Remember this post?)... There are a lot of people and things needing a lot of my attention right now, and I feel like I never have enough time or energy to be effective.  I need a "re-set" button for life.  Anyone else?

If so, here a few tiny bits of inspiration & motivation I found on Pinterest (of course):


What do you do when you're feeling overwhelmed? How do you just BEGIN?

Here's to a weekend full of good laughs, good sleep, good motivation, and good thoughts!  TGIF!

  1. Take a step back, breathe and then draft a to-do list. Prioritize the list and then start with the easiest priorities. It will help you feel accomplished!

  2. I needed this, E. I just started my two longest weeks ever today. The "Strive for progress and not perfection" quote is what made me say, "THIS!!" and helped me calm down. Thank you.

  3. I always make a list and do the easiest/quickest things first! Crossing things off so quickly feels great!! Don't be overwhelmed...remember, everyone will survive and everything will be fine!

  7. Just what I needed! I usually don't even bother trying to stay motivated on Friday afternoons-- I go home and read a book or watch mindless TV. I re-motivate on Saturday.

  9. Great words to live by! When I am feeling really overwhelmed I make a list of all the things I need to accomplish. Then I prioritize the list and pick the "doable" ones.. checking the items off when I finish. I would also give myself Friday night to just rest and relax!
