I haven’t posted in a few weeks because I needed to take a mental break. I had so many things on my plate that I felt completely overwhelmed. I began forgetting, and making unusual mistakes because I allowed too many things to enter my mental space. I found myself using my cedarwood essential oil incessantly.
When you begin to feel mental drain it’s usually due to lack of planning, and/or indistinct boundaries. Either way, the issue is do you care enough about yourself to decline the things that don’t serve your being. As a recovering low “self-esteemer” (I just made that up), I struggle with creating boundaries. I don’t want to disappoint people so I take on things that I don’t want to. I allow their problem to become my problem, although I had nothing to do with creating the problem.
The key is to realize that you (and I) are worthy of peace and calm within our spirits. If you are asked to do something that doesn’t serve your being, and isn’t a part of your personal agenda, then it’s okay to decline respectfully. You (and I) have to do what makes you feel most like you. It’s authentic. It’s real. If people do not understand that, then you may have to make a tough choice to limit or even eliminate being in their presence so that you don’t reflect their energy.
Overwhelm is self-inflicted. Choose to have a plan. Choose to have boundaries.
Pray, meditate, then take action.

Changes to this blog will be coming soon. I’m wrestling with whether I should turn this into a daily blog, or continue as weekly. It’s a difficult decision because it would mean it would take more of my time. However, I want to sit quietly, listen to the Holy Spirit and make a decision that will serve everyone. Please be patient with me. Just know that I’m working on becoming a better person in order to present better content, but I want to make the best decision. I appreciate your patience in this transition.
