As a writer, and someone who must fight daily to keep depression from sneaking up on me again, I understand that it’s very easy for me to get overwhelmed. I find myself doing several things at once and it feels like I have hundreds of ideas swirling around in my head like a jumbled mess. I am trying to find the best way for someone like me to multitask. I currently have a planner for work, a planner for my book(s), and a planner for my social media. I’m not sure if I need just one planner or if I need to keep everything separate. It’s a trial and error process.
I am currently finishing up one of my books, BUT I have also started researching for two other books I want to get done right now AND I have jotted down some ideas about another book series I want to start right now. I am feeling a little overwhelmed. I do understand that I have too much going on and I would have a lot less stress if I could focus on just one thing at a time. That’s not easy for me to do.
There is also tons of stuff going on in my life that doesn’t involve writing and I’m just trying to find a good balance to keep my sanity. So, what do I do? Today, I am taking a step back to try to figure it out. Sundays are days to rest. I need to rest in the Lord and rest from my stress. It’s very hard for me to let my mind rest. I always see or think of things that need to be done. Does anyone else have this problem? I can’t be the only one. I need advice. I’m going to take this day to study God’s word and seek out ways to organize these different areas of my life. I’m too blessed to be stressed!
