Sometimes I feel like that Marshmallow. All melted and squished. Even though I’m surrounded by great things I still feel a bit uncomfortable.
Today is S’more Day! A day to build a campfire, find a stick, roast some marshmallows and put that hot marshmallow against a chocolate bar with graham crackers on each side and enjoy every delicious gooey bite!
While the melted marshmallow is delicious in a S’more, feeling squished in real life is not much fun. Have you ever felt that way?
Not enough time, too many roles, too many responsibilities, too much stuff, health problems or not enough time can all make you feel smothered and overwhelmed. How do you deal with it? Some people exercise, some people meditate, some people eat….usually something sweet and yummy like a S’more.
I have found it is very helpful when I’m feeling too crowded and overwhelmed, to just stop and take a deep breath and think about what is the top priority for the immediate future. Of all the things I’m dealing with, what one thing is most important to be completed today. It can be spending time with your family, calling a friend, writing a blog post, making that sales call, or doing your taxes. Whatever you have given to priority is the thing you need to do first.
Once that is completed, you have been successful even if you get nothing else completed. Of course, once one thing is completed, you might feel you can do more, and that is great. If not, don’t beat yourself up. Take a deep breath and celebrate what you did accomplish.
You might even want to celebrate with a S’more!
