A Word on Overwhelm
Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love. —Rumi
Almost universally, when a person is feeling overwhelmed in life, it is due to the tragic expression of unmet needs. We are all dealing with the demands to do more with less, we have multiple, and sometimes conflicting roles (parenting vs. career- building) and research suggests that if we get less than 6 hours of sleep a night, our judgment is equal to that of DUI.
We have 24 hours in each day, and if we are not thoughtful about how we invest our time, we can quickly become very inhospitable to others, monster-like even.
