Someone please tell me, WHAT IS OVERWHELM?

         Too many things to do, too many projects unfinished,

             The sink is full of dishes; the kitchen is a mess,

Emails keep buzzing; the phone won’t take a rest,

The kids won’t behave and hubby is having a moody day

Sitting at my desk but feel the need to sway!

My desk is overloaded with nothing I need,

I’m trying to keep up with tasks at speed,

This one, that one, which one first,

I don’t even get time to quench my thirst,

There’s a knock at the door, who can that be?

Doesn’t working from home mean WORKING from home?

I don’t have time for a cup of tea,

Please let me be, please let me be

Overwhelm is an emotion, it comes in many forms,

Anger, frustration and causes a storm,

Don’t blame others for the missing link,

Completing the work will get you back in sync.

Give yourself care and allow your brain to rest,

Sometimes we forget we need to refresh,

Break it all down to smaller chunks,

Learn serenity as do the monks,

Let me give you a little tip, just sway to the right and walk out the door!

Beautiful, Neelam! I’m inspired by your poetry–and your message. Such a heartfelt post, thanks for sharing it. Reminds me of a great documentary film, “Who Does She Think She Is?”–all about women artists/creatives and how striking a balance between motherhood and creative pursuits is a lifelong challenge.

Thank you for your kind words Jeannie, I totally agree with striking a balance between motherhood and business, it definately is a lifelong challenge, which can be made easier with the right business mind.
