If There Is One Thing I Know Lately, It Is Being Overwhelmed- Linking Up For ‘Things I Know’.

This week I am linking up with Shae from Yay For Home for another edition of ‘Things I Know’.
If there is something I have become very familiar with this past week, it would definitely be the immense feeling of being OVERWHELMED.
It’s not a fun place to be when you’re living it, and the more I talk about it, the more I realise so many of us go through it each and everyday.
This is what I know…..

* It’s that feeling you get when you have a thousand thoughts racing around in your mind non-stop 24/7.


* Its the fear of not getting things done.

* It’s the constant worry about everything and anything.

* It’s the realisation that you cannot be right all of the time.


* It’s the knowledge that things will get worse before they get better.


* It’s the emptiness of letting go and giving up control.


* It’s the thought in your mind that asks “where do I start”.


* It’s endless tears and upset because you know you can do this.


* It’s frustration at it’s best.


* It’s distance from those you love and want to be near.


* It’s the disappointment when goals are not met.


* It’s the rush of emotion when things go right.


* It’s the fuzzy in your tummy feeling that makes you grin like the Cheshire Cat.

I guess what I am trying to say is that we all can feel a little overwhelmed sometimes.
This week has been a big one for me but the ‘overwhelmed’ feeling has passed and it always does.

Tomorrow is a new day!

      Thanks Kate, all is good. Just wanted to share what I had experienced during the week!!! :-)

    2. Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it. Thanks for sharing those pins! Great reminders that today is only one day.

    3. That is fabulous! So true! I've had one of those ``feeling overwhelmed'' weeks too. Wish I had have read this as the start of the week! xx

    4. This pretty much sums up my ups and downs - get overwhelmed for a few days, push through, figure it all out, feel calm for a few days and the rinse and repeat!

    5. I love this post , so creative but it speaks volumes about things that seem overwhelming. Hope next week is better . Love the positive ending.

    6. Oops, I was laughing so much I forgot to finish my sentence. I meant the angry birds IMAGE made me snort! lol

      Cracked me up too TIna, I thought I couldn't be all miserable the whole post LOL :-) xo

    8. I love these.

    9. Great post! I could identify with every one of the images - where do I start seems to be a pretty common question for me these days - but it is comforting to know that we all feel that way once in a while!

    10. It's all of those things and more.

    11. commonchaoschronicle

      You're so right!

    12. Feeling overwhelmed is not fun and it always feels like it will never end while you're going through it - glad you got to the other side with your sense of fun and humour intact!

    13. Love reading your words of wisdom and it's all so true, but the best one is - there is only one person that is right in a marriage and the other is a husband! LOL!

    14. The last quote is my favourite :) Know the overwhelmed feeling all too well.

    15. That overwhelmed feeling is awful xoxo
