I think "overwhelmed" might have been one of the most overused words in this blog to date. Goodness knows I have reason to feel that way much of the time. Take this month, for instance. In addition to my regularly scheduled life of single parenting and piano teaching, I spoke at the GMTA conference and committed to making and selling 300 bracelets in 30 days and writing 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November. Not only that, there are two books I have promised author friends to review, and I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow.
It's enough to make a sane person crazy.
But then I read Danielle LaPorte's blog post, strike "overwhelmed" from your vocabulary," and it changed my entire outlook. The combination of her words, "you've got what it takes to meet life with more giving" and ridding my life of toxic relationships has catapulted me into a new phase of productivity.
Like my blog partner Lindy Chaffin Start, I am unstoppable.
Check back tomorrow for the first of my seven days of Thanksgiving.
