I watched the cursor blink at me--my mind spinning.

Too many tasks for a single day. Too many that needed to be completed right now ...yet weren't. I hope to catch up tomorrow, but that's probably wishful thinking. I have things I want to write about, but I don't have the time or brain space to put them into words. Too much life noise. Too much scrambling and getting nowhere. In fact, the little blinking line waiting for me to enter a title for this post was remarkably calm compared to me. And that's when I realized I just needed to let it go.

<the cursor blinks>

If your life feels overwhelming, too full, frenetic... drop something. Put something down for awhile. I know what it means to have everything require your attention at the same time, but we just can't do that. Eventually the craziness takes over.

So stop.


Take a deep breath. Be still for a moment. If it helps to watch the cursor for a minute, do so. Then re-enter life with a fresh perspective.

And get a good night's sleep (if you can).

Don't worry: The crazy can return tomorrow if you miss it. <smile>
