Deer in the Headlights Syndrome
Overwhelm is that feeling that there-is-too-much-to-do-and-how-will-I-ever-get-it-done-with-so-much-on-my-plate-right-now-anyway kind of rush. You can get like a deer crossing the road and then freezes when she sees the oncoming headlights.
So what to do when you get "deer in the headlights syndrome?"
Heave a juicy sigh and let go of it all for just a few seconds.
Center your thoughts on the inside and ask:
What is the one thing I can do now that will serve me the most in this moment?
Trust your guts.
Say thank you.
Take action: a baby step is enough.
The idea is to take small steps in the direction of your goals and dreams. (Make sure they are your goals and dreams.)
One step at a time gets you to your destination, one potato peeled starts dinner, one paragraph written starts the ball rolling, one hug or smile starts the healing where there's pain.
You can do this.
