Did you ever feel like you have too much on your plate! That you have so much going on that you just don’t know how you’re going to get it all done?
I was on vacation for 10 days and when I returned home, it seems like I can’t catch up to all the things that are on my to do list. Yikes! That feeling of being overwhelmed can creep right into my brain and disturb my peace of mind.
Thank God I meditate, take great care of my health, eat well, dance, walk, breath, read inspirational books, stay connected to positive people and journal. If I didn’t do these practices every day, I would loss it. Really, there is way too much to keep up with. A day at a time or a minute at a time, sometimes. I know if I try to force things to happen, I’m working too hard. That is why staying connected to a higher consciousness, call it God, infinite intelligence or what you want is oh so vital.
It took many years to feel this peace but once you establish the habit, wow, it is my savior.
So, if you feel overwhelmed with too many things on your plate. Pause, take a few deep breaths and relax. Then, surrender it all. Let it all go. It will all get done. And if it doesn’t tomorrow is another day. Find your joy in every moment! It’s there if you look for it!

Did you know, that the way you do one thing is the way you do everything. How do you wash dishes, or fold laundry? Or what are your daily habits? Do you eat healthy foods and take care of your body? Do you take time to read and nourish your mind? Or do you rush through your life, not paying much attention to any small act? It’s really the small things that add up to the bigger ones. Are you even conscious of your breath? By taking the time and consciously becoming aware of the seemingly little things in your life, everything will improve. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. Every act, thought, and feeling, that you have effects your being. They may appear, subtle, minute, and not important, however, they become apart of your makeup. Your character is influenced by the accumulation of all the small things. The way you do one thing is the way you do everything. So examine your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Become the observer of your own life. The next time you wash dishes, or make your bed, or cook a meal, consciously become aware of the process and add a dash of love to any and everything you do. You will be amazed at what a difference it will make in your life. Its the little things, add up to the bigger ones. Everything you do matters!

I recently came across an article, and in it was a quote from George Washington Carver. This is the man who is known for inventing peanut butter. This was a man of character. His quote was “When you love something enough, it will speak to you.” He loved botany. He devoted his life to it and the plant world spoke to him. The character of this man become his destiny. George Washington Carver, actually turned down a position where he was offered $100.000 a year. That would be equivalent to over a $1,000.000 today. His character was so great, that he refused to accept money for the gifts he said God gave him. He invented crop rotation and many other helpful techniques that have saved time and helped the world. We should all take a lesson from this great man of character. Love nature and allow it to speak to us.
