Happy Birthday to My Sister
Happy Birthday to my little sister Today you are 26 years old Oh how we…
My brain cannot function if it is held up with multiple worries and concerns. I have to focus on one piece of the pie at a time. Meaning, if life tosses me multiple things that I have to resolve, I cannot just sit back and think about this one and that one then the next one all at once. The reason is that I have three kids, two of which are extremely active boys, on top of everything that goes on in the adult world living as a responsible adult. My brain works best when I take one piece of the puzzle at a time and work efficiently but with this rhythm that ends up solving all of the situations that have come up.
With that being said, I essentially need to focus on a solution rather than the problem or concern. My brain will shut down immediately upon having been tossed a ton of worries or being around someone who is citing all of their concerns in some mumbled paragraph. I have to take one step at a time and have faith it will all work out. This process has worked amazingly for me as a work from home mother because I can find the solutions easier and don’t get too overwhelmed about things.
If I allow myself to become consumed or overwhelmed with anything then I end up basically going into a slow depression zone where I will only have the function and energy to sleep. I am not kidding, there have been times where my brain got so cramped up that I slept the one full day I had to work because that is all it could handle.
Taking one step at a time just makes sense. Less stress. Healthier heart. And the solution to things come better if you have true faith and a belief that everything will work out. I promise you it will work out, even if you don’t always understand in the present day, there will be a future day when you nod your head and say “oh yeah, that is why that happened that way”.
