I feel overwhelmed a lot. Yes mostly because I am a #momofthree to kiddos under the age of 5 but there seems to be an undercurrent of overwhelm affecting tons of people these days. We have SO many things vying for our attention. We get beeped, pinged, dinged, buzzed, jingled, called, texted, emailed, etc more often than not. We are so connected to information that our response is often immediate, reactionary and impulsive. Not to mention there are so many options and choices we need to make constantly. This can wreak havoc on our nervous system and our psyche. Then throw in the demands and constant attention needed to govern children.
Sometimes when you start a new journey you need to hit a lot of bumps along the way to make sure you are on the right path for the right reasons. I started sharing my writing on my blog after I had Everly (almost three years ago now!) I had no idea how to do this, where to start and was extremely intimidated by all the other amazing bloggers out there writing and earning an income from their efforts.
