It’s not always easy to emulate this guy:
Between work, home ownership, gardening, dogs and trying to be an all-around awesome individual to all of the people I care about, there are days when I don’t feel very much like River Dog at all.
In fact, some days I don’t even want to be in the river.
I wonder how River Dog does it — keeps his chin up even when the current is rough and the water is cold.
Obviously, feeling overwhelmed by life is not unique to me. In fact, I bet a lot of you reading this right now feel at times incredibly weighed down by the responsibilities of your life.
River Dog takes nothing but himself into the water.
Is there anything you can let go of?
Or can you at least decide to politely decline the next time someone comes wagging another possible commitment in your face?
I know that’s a tough order for us people pleasers, but our sanity may depend on it.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed? How did you overcome that feeling?
