anyways, whenever i get overwhelmed, i try to look at one task at a time and then slowly allow myself to focus on that one event. however this usually ends in my mind wandering from that chapter to the rest of the novel again. so then i turn to scripture where Jesus, all-knowing, speaks:
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?"
"Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
-Matthew 6:25, 27, and 34
i am mainly posting this for myself but if you are ever feeling stressed, just remember these words. they're good advice! if you get caught up too much in the stress of your tasks you won't be really taking in life when worrying doesn't gain you anything.
