I Might Be......Overwhelmed....Again!

Below is a repost from last February.
At the time, the program I work for was in the hiring process for a new Program Advisor.

Well, it looks like we will be at it again.
Only this time, I have no idea when the hiring process will even begin.

That means a whole lot more on my plate than just a couple months of extra visits.
It might be like this until the end of the school year.
I have no idea!

In addition to my normal position, I also do some other office work {that I don't get paid for}.
So now adding on another half of a position...this could get exciting!

It was great to go back and read that, especially the link I shared.

This past weekend in church, the message was on worship.

So, during this time of chaos, I will worship the One who has blessed me.


Holy cow folks! 

I don't even know where to begin. 

I might be getting a little anxious about work.
I might be overwhelmed with everything.
I might be nervous about the potential new hire {who I will be sharing an office with and helping with some of the transition into the position}.
I might be wondering how I will get everything done.
I might be wondering if I will overlook any of the additional students I'll be serving or miss meeting their needs.

I might be....OVERWHELMED!!

Starting today, I will be in the office only 1 more full day {and 2 partial} this month. 
Then in March...I believe I'll be in the office 4 days until the last week of the month.

This isn't normal for me!  I'm use to being in the office 3 days a week.  So going from 3 days a week, to not even 3 days in a month, I'm overwhelmed!

While I was sitting here at my desk looking at my schedule and figuring out what I will be doing and trying to get my bearings straight, an email for a blog updated came in.

I took a break, and went to the blog to read.

Wow.  Just what I needed. 

What I will be remembering during the next couple of months....

“Honk if you are happy” is really “To be happy, honk.”
“Give thanks if you are joy-filled” is really — “To be joy-filled, give thanks.”

Thanks Ann for getting my focus back to where it should be. 

~Where the happiness is~

That should be with Christ.

Not a pitty party for me with what is going on at work/life.

But my happiness is found in Christ.

When I start feeling overwhelmed, I'll start honking

Well, maybe I'll just start praising God for all the ways He has blessed me, and the happiness it has brought.

Honking/praising for:
things big
things small

What will you honk for?

Feeling the same pressure here...and needed this focus too...as work assignments pile up, travel is scheduled, training prep unfolds. Arghhhhh. So I need to go honk...too.
