For this to have attracted your attention…
Then you and I must have this in common
I have to be completely honest with you here…
The older I get
The more of a challenge this is for me!
Is this the same for you?
I find myself wanting to do everything at once
Fit everything in one day!
Realistically, that is not actually possible

So then what happens?
WELL, usually… I find myself

It’s like a freaking vicious circle!

Well I just had this experience a few minutes before writing this blog – and this is what I did to get over it and make friends with Overwhelm
