If you're anything like me, you get so flippin' overwhelmed by life sometimes that you just want to find a nice corner and pout about it. Or maybe it's just me; I don't really know. I just know that lately I've been in a rut and struggle as I may, I can't seem to climb myself out of it.
I listen to K-LOVE like every single day because well, that's my jam and on my way to work (or was I on my way home?) on Friday (I think?) I was just kinda tuned in (Yup, on my way home...on Friday. I remember this now) and I caught this simple sentence: 'My inbox is overflowing but my outbox is empty.'
Yup! That's it! That's me right now! I have a bazillion requests, to-do's, hopes, wishes and other random goodness that I can't seem to get my mind to settle down long enough to focus on one thing. Well, maybe other than blogging. I've been doing pretty good with the blogging lately - but it is an outlet for me, so maybe that's why? Hmm...
Still, there's this list and it just keeps getting longer. I can't seem to get anything from my inbox to my outbox and even if I do, the response returns quicker than what I can move on to the next. It leaves me stuck in a routine where I just get the minimum finished and I become depressed, lonely and feeling sorry for myself. Feeling sorry for yourself sucks! And so does being depressed and lonely. Trust me. You don't want to go there.
So how do I get out of this rut? How do I learn to focus on just one thing? Got any tips for this crazy, ambitious girl that WANTS to do so much that she's fallen into the trap of doing nothing? I'm thanking you in advance (and so is my outbox!).
