Pause ~ When Life Gets a Little Overwhelming

Do you ever feel like you need to put life on pause, just for a few days, so you can catch up? That’s where I am right now. I’m either wishing there were more hours in the day or longing for enough energy to make the best of the ones I have.

Tumbling down the stairs has taken it out of me. My body is obviously working hard to heal itself, which doesn’t seem to leave me with much strength for anything else. Having taken on a new client just before the accident, I’ve been pushing myself professionally while also trying to recover at the same time. That’s one of the harsher realities of self-employment I guess.

I’m just about managing to keep my head above water, but I’m frustrated by the things I’ve been forced to let slide. I’ve been dreaming big this year and making plans, but I’m struggling with the idea that hard work is all that’s needed to achieve success. What if you’re pushing yourself to your absolute limit, but you still don’t feel like it’s getting you anywhere?

We’re off to Paris this weekend. The days leading up to our break will probably feel quite stressful as I try to prepare for some time off, but I cannot wait to hit pause for 48hrs and just ‘be’. I hope I come back feeling a little more refreshed and brimming with inspiration.

What do you do when life starts to feel a little overwhelming?
