Overwhelmed: verb; to overcome completely in mind or feeling
It doesn’t say a tiny piece it says COMPLETELY. Here recently I feel like it’s been just one feeling or another; doubt, insignificance, sadness, remorse, perfection, loneliness, comparison, defeat, or selfishness just to name a few. I keep thinking the cycle will end but ha-just kidding on to the next one.
Some days are worse than others when I hear a song, when I see a patient struggle, or when random thought feels like it transports you back in time. Some day’s I’m just surrounded by a fog. That’s when visibility is none and you can barely see the hand in front of your face. Still you put one foot in front of the other and act like nothing’s wrong because you have a certain mindset that you always have to be smiling or happy. Just to get alone and be overcome with whatever’s in the fog of the day.
In these times what do you do? Do you just wallow in it, or do you rise above? Here recently I am not happy to say I have let myself wallow in it more than I should. So here I am a new day, overcome completely with a feeling newness and refreshment. Here’s to turning on the high beams and making it through the fog no matter how dense. Here’s to staying focused on putting one foot in front of the other, to surrounding myself with good people, and being overcome with newness.
