What to Do when Feeling Overwhelmed

Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.

  1. Better to exert our energy on that which is possible.
    than to risk the loss of our inner peace. The frazzled
    heart can mend nothing, but the heart that is at peace
    can perform the little miracles that bring God’s love
    and peace to others – the only way to fix anything.

  2. Thank you, Pat. I keep reminding myself that I dont need to carry the whole world on my shoulders because God already carries it on his. Love and blessings from North Wales ♥

    • Thank you so much, Isabella Rose. It is good to hear from North Wales. It is always a challenge – this letting go business! Blessings on you, your photography, and all you are about. Pat 😀

  3. Thank you Pat, just now I feel even the part I am supposed to cover are to big, then I realize, as always, I am looking at the wrong place…

    • Hi Solveig. It can definitely feel that way sometimes. I often need to change my perspective and reorient myself. 😉 Blessings to you! Pat
