I’m sure it’s not just me who gets the feeling of being overwhelmed.
Being at an event where there are so many people to talk to and so much to do can be extremely overwhelming. You just don’t know where to look half the time, but there’s always that feeling afterwards that you’ve overcome whatever feelings you have and almost satisfaction that you’ve done it.
On the other hand, there’s the situation of taking on so much and being so busy doing everything you possibly can. That can also be so overwhelming but in a good way. I remember I used to sit around doing practically nothing before blogging and now with organising events too, all my spare time awake goes into that and blogging. That in itself can be completely overwhelming but I love having small side projects that go with blogging.
It opens up a whole number of possibilities and exciting opportunities.
While being and feeling completely overwhelmed is only a small factor, the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment completely outweighs any negative feelings.
Yesterday I shared a post with you on How I Lost 1 Stone in 1 Month and ran my personal best mile last week, for me this was a completely overwhelming feeling. I’ve lost weight, something I’ve battled with for years, an addiction to food that I simply didn’t know how to deal with and I’m so proud of myself that when I think about it, I cannot believe it and I get so overwhelmed that I could cry. Then I think that I can do this, I can really do this, I can lose weight and be happier and find pretty dresses that I can wear without feeling ridiculously self conscious. Already I’ve bought jeans a size smaller and I have a new favourite outfit, that actually looks good! It’s overwhelming but also an amazing achievement when I thought it was just a downwards spiral, turns out it can go up too!
It actually makes me so excited for the future, I don’t think I could ask for anything more right now!
