Flying with too much

I need to learn how to say no. Lately I have felt that I am not doing enough. So as a consequence of this, I end up over doing it. I like to say that I am a high achiever, but the more I think about it there are times when I am crazy person. 

Case and point: I left my purse in Greenville, SC and did not realize it until I was 10 miles outside of Savannah, GA. I simply left in the business center at the hotel. Why? My GPS was taking a very long time to give me a route to Savannah so I went inside to print out directions. I took my purse inside and there it stayed. 

Was I freaked out? I had no driver's license, credit cards, money, lip gloss, and tons of other stuff. I had to borrow money to put gas in my car and to eat. I called my friend who lives in Greenville to overnight my purse. In the meantime I drove home from Savannah in fear that I would get pulled over. That was one of the longest two and a half hours of my life. 

I need to better in the tasks that I take on. I need to write down all of the things that I am doing in an effort to remind myself that I do a lot. I need to slow down and be deliberate and not allow myself to become overwhelmed. 

I don't think that you can let the storms of life overwhelm you. When you do that, you are no better than the craziness that caused you to be under attack.
