Life has its ups and downs and I am rising up from one of its less than pleasant episodes. The past few weeks I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. It happens. I think it happens to all of us. Through all of it I have learned this... I tend to put more pressure on myself than any outside force ever has. It may not be necessary to always see the whole. Maybe parts, bits, pieces are enough. Those who live life with blinders on may not always be myopic, just a little more focused.
