Boy, did I need this reminder.
Lately, I’ve been feeling completely, thoroughly, and utterly overwhelmed.
With my “book stuff” alone, I have three new books in various stages of getting ready to release. I also have four audio books in production, two facebook parties I’m hosting, two big online book tours, and a myriad of other things that need my immediate attention.
In fact, to try to get a better handle on it all, I typed up a list of everything I could think of that connected to the release of those three books that I need to finish before the release dates.
I ended up with two and a half single-spaced typed pages. Just looking at it, sitting on my desk, makes me want to freak out.
Instead of pulling a blanket over my head and hiding in a corner, though, I went to Captain Cavedweller and asked him if he could help with a few projects. Of course, he readily agreed to take on the tasks.
That made me wonder why it is we so often feel like we have to do everything ourselves. It isn’t a sign of weakness to ask for help. There is grace in realizing we don’t have to handle everything on our own and allowing others to lighten our burdens.
