overwhelm blues here's the thing...despite my best intentions to take it easy and slooooowly get settled in and unpacked...for the past 3 days I have been working non-stop unpacking boxes and sorting and organizing and getting rid of and...Until I am pretty much pooped. I am tired + overwhelmed + blue.  Sometimes I wish I could sit around all day eating bonbons and watching soaps. I hate soaps...well, maybe talk shows or something. Anyways...sometimes I just get so tired of all the...doing. Do you know what I mean?? But...there are things that have to get done...balance gets thrown out the window and...we just do the best we can while trying to be gentle with ourSELVES and the ones we love. Sometimes that's the most difficult part of it all.

No surprise you are feeling overwhelmed and pooped Soraya. You've had 2 moves in such a short time. It is a well known fact that moving is one of the most stressful things to go through. So sorry you are feeling blue. Try and get right away from the house for a short while every day. xoxo

OK, deep breath....
Repeat after me:

This too shall pass
Things are going to get better

Another breath....

Sending big hugs!!

Oh Soraya, I know that just feel it, rest a bit, and let it go. Your energy will return. In the meantime, here's my fav quote from the (brilliant) Dalia Lama:
"Stop. Breathe. Smile."

moving is such a lot of work! but it will all get done / unpacked eventually. be easy on yourself and slip a bit of relaxation into each day.
