It’s funny how when you have so much to do that your mind starts racing and you cannot find anything to hold your attention long enough to talk about or write about for longer than 5 seconds.
It’s funny how someone can start a conversation with you and you can completely zone out and only think about the final you should be studying for or the paper you should be writing. Well, folks, that’s where I am right now and here are my thoughts on what it’s like to be overwhelmed with life for a short period of time.
At first, it probably seems fun, like your mind is finally entertained with something after being bored for too long. You’ve been waiting and waiting for things to start coming your way and then suddenly they bombard you all at once, leaving you with little time to change your socks. However, you don’t complain at first, you take it step by step, enjoying it for all that it’s worth.
Slowly your mind starts spinning, checking things off your to-do list left and right. It is then you remember the things you have - to do that you forgot to put on your do list and your left spinning around in your own head again, wondering how you forgot to write that down. You start making more to-do list, so many that you spend more time making to-do list than doing things – it’s quite hilarious actually. You’re trying so hard to get stuff done, but here you are procrastinating on to-do list.
It really is kind of funny when you think about it, how we get so caught up in our own head that we forget to live life and breath for a second. We sit in our own thoughts and become captivated by all that we “have to do” we forget about what we want to do (note to self, add things I want to do to my to-do list). It’s a mystery how we survive long periods of being overwhelmed, but it’s what makes us resilient, persistent and strong.
