Busy Bee

You know that feeling when you are so overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do?

Yeah… I know that feeling…

But yesterday I decided on something – it’s a ‘happy’ overwhelmed feeling. Although it may be a lot of work to get something finished, or you may have involved yourself in too many volunteer activities, or there is a lot of studying to be done – in the long run, it’s to your benefit.

My friend and I were talking the other day and we thought to ourselves: How stupid is it that we keep on complaining “Ughhh I have so much work to do because I’m involved in too much” – because if you think about it, that’s practically saying “Ughhh I can’t believe I have so many great opportunities that I’m involved in, like volunteering, being able to go to school, and getting an education”.

We are so privileged to be able to be getting an education and having opportunities to help others – there are many people in the world that want to do that but are not able to due to their circumstances.

So now, every time I feel like complaining, or want to hide under the covers because the amount of work I have to do terrifies me, I will have to remind myself that I have been given this amazing opportunity and should not let it go to waste.

  1. Love your post. This is the real understanding of life. Challenges are opportunities in in disguise. Challenges are often the very catalyst that unlocks hidden opportunities. Here are some examples:

    Challenge: I’m worried I’m going to lose my job.
    Opportunity: Get my resume updated and start networking to find that rewarding and fulfilling job I’ve been thinking about pursuing for the last two years.

    Challenge: I have less money to go out to eat.
    Opportunity: Download some new recipes from the internet to expand my cooking skills and start having intimate dinners at home with family and friends.

    Challenge: Sales are down and business is slow.
    Opportunity: Use this slow time to get my office organized, update my marketing materials, and reconnect with past customers I’ve had no time call.
