Writing About Feeling Overwhelmed

I felt very overwhelmed earlier today. Tonight, to be more technical.

There’s so much I want to do, so much I strive to do every day. But sometimes life decides to throw curveballs at you from left field and right and down the middle. So it gets to be a little too much at times. Thinking about all you have to do and how little time you have to do it all is not a pleasant experience.

You know what helped me get through the night? Writing. I started this blog post and then I went and wrote in a notebook. I wrote poetry. I just wrote and wrote and wrote.

I will never stop putting words down on the page. I cannot not write. 

I don’t know what I’d do without writing, without words.

I’m not as overwhelmed now.

  1. I understand what you mean. I’ve been having an overwhelming week, as well. Writing does help as does budgeting your time. It’s hard, but it’s life. For now, anyway.


      1. Oh, yes! I wish every weekend was a long weekend… I think people would be much happier and more relaxed if we had a three days off and four days of work/school. Two days just isn’t enough, especially since that’s when everyone is free so that’s when all the family and friend events take place. There’s not much room for relaxation.


      2. Exactly! I feel the same way. I’d be much happier if I had three days off. So true. There are a ton of family gatherings around the end and beginning of every year. Not that I’m complaining. I just wish I had more time to do things.

  2. Since my classes are only on Wednesdays and Thursdays, I have long weekends on either side. See what happens when we have time (and proper age) to semi-retire. Wish y’all could be so lucky as far as work and school are concerned!
