When life becomes overwhelming

“Overwhelming ! People think about jumping off bridges . . . when they see what I have on my plate . . . and that’s just before lunch”
― Kevin Kolenda

Being overwhelmed does not have to be a bad thing.

What it means is that something has changed in your life and often that change is that you’ve grown and succeeded at something. 

Of course you don’t want to live in a perpetual state of “overwhelmedness” but don’t beat yourself up when life becomes overwhelming, use it as an opportunity to ask yourself, “What is different about my life and how am I going to grow through this?”

The ONE THING for today: Being overwhelmed is no disgrace, what will be a disgrace is that you waste it by not becoming a better person.
