Today I feel very overwhelmed with too much information. In my life when it rains it pours and over the past 24 hours this proves to be true with more fun in store tomorrow. It is times like this that I do miss having a car and just driving.
When I drive I think and process information. I get to listen to my music - I imagine that today I would be listening to some loud and heavy music full of pounding drums, heavy bass and some serious guitar - oh and screaming! What I refer to when my son plays it as that "angry music". Basically anything from Metallica, Maiden, or just about any band from the early 90's.
I think the music distracts one part of my brain and lets the other part ponder what needs to be pondered and the driving is a focused activity which uses another part of my brain. Amazingly other than a slight full brain feeling I am not emotional - I think the shock from the information I got today will just come later when reality sets in.
I have to settle for cleaning and decorating. Two major distraction techniques also! Moving and cleaning under every bit of furniture, every nook and cranny I can reach and incorporating Christmas into my displays will keep me mucho busy.
I also have to decide how to put my large oriental rug into my living room now that I have it home and it is vacuumed and cleaned. Furniture arrangement is such a chore for me lately. It used to come so naturally and now it just frustrates me. It needs to be done though.
One step closer to having my home in order. One goal at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time. Focusing on my life and my order while processing the intricacies of others and the effects upon my life both directly and indirectly.
Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers today. I am needing the energy of others to get me through the upcoming challenges without losing my mind!
