Today’s thought from Hazelden is:
Some days my life feels so confusing and overwhelming that I think I’ll scream.
Sometimes life is like moving from one place to another. When I move into a new house, it is unorganized and chaotic until everything gets put in the right place. In life, my emotions and thoughts are often like the new house full of boxes. I am learning how to unpack one emotional "box" at a time, throw out what I no longer need, and put what I do need in its proper place. It’s a hard job, but it’s all part of the process of taking back my life.
When my emotional work gets too hectic, I will remember to keep things simple, to deal with one "box" at a time. Eventually, I’ll get through the craziness, and everything will be in its rightful place.
