Overwhelm. When I hear this word, I see a huge 20-ft wave cresting over the person speaking of feeling like this. This is not the type of wave you can swim under, ride in body surfing, or survive. It is the type of wave that crushes and sucks the life out of you. That is what “overwhelm” does. It sucks all your breath, your life force, out of you. The longer you stay in that state, the more of your life it claims.
When you are functioning on overwhelm mode on a regular basis, you are just existing. You are not enjoying your life; not breathing; not feeling hopeful. You are missing the flipside of “overwhelm” which is hopeful, joyous, and vibrant. The interesting thing about everything is that it has a flipside which is usually it’s polar opposite. The great thing is that it often only takes a choice or a life-changing event, or what we call a miracle, to switch you from forlorn and overwhelmed to hopeful and joyously creative.
You can wait around for the miracle (or truly to have the eyes and heart to see the miracle) or you can actually decide that you need to change something in your life because you can’t or truly won’t live like this anymore. That defining moment can be right now when you are in the next state of overwhelm, or never. Be clear that you have many chances to change this and all other situations. Your feelings trigger your thoughts; your thoughts trigger your actions. Repetitive actions create the patterns and habits that are the underpinnings of your life. Habits don’t arrive out of thin air. They are created because you are telling yourself that you need them. You need a habit for many and various assorted reasons, but you have a need.
The great thing with giving up overwhelm is this:
- It is only a state of mind that drives the actions to keep you so busy you can’t feel your real self.
- You have buried you alive. You have made decisions that have literally buried you alive.
- If you want to unearth you, you need to be willing to do something that will give you the power to rise from the dead.
Are you ready to do that? What are you ready to say yes to? It doesn’t have to take a lot of time but it has to take a lot of intent to have a different life. That can be scary. As much as you might say you want something different, it is often the want to want. You wish it would be different but not enough to take those really scary actions to make it so. I only want those who are ready to jump off the end of the bridge and trust that there is more that they can deserve. Desire, then do the action to move you in the right direction.
If you are saying yes, yes please me I really want to change because I want more life and less lifelessness, then I want you to follow me.
