We’ve all been there. You know, that overwhelming feeling of feeling overwhelmed. If that’s you today, please take a deep breath. Pull over, and take a moment. I’m going to remind you of a few things that I experienced lately in a highly stressful, overwhelming situation.

Here are the three (3) lessons I learned from my SACRED S.O.L. STORY. I believe they'll help you the next time you feel overwhelmed…

Lesson #1: Set the poop down!

Whatever's going on in your life…set the poop down. If you’re carrying around “crap” in your life, it’s time to set it down. It’s unnecessary. Let it go. Release it, and YOURSELF. It’ll make everything better.

Lesson #2: Make sure your vision is clear.

When we cannot see clearly, it makes everything feel overwhelming.

Take a look at whatever you’re dealing with from a completely different, or opposite, perspective today.

Is it possible that you have truth in front of you, and you have VISION, but you’re looking at it from only one side (perspective)?

Lesson #3: Push the STOP button.

Whether it’s the pause button or a full nap, take a break. Take a deep breath.

Everything will seem much more manageable, and peaceful. Please take a breath (preferably without any poop in your hand.)

If you’re feeling overwhelmed today, please try these three things, and let me know how it goes for you.


1. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage with yourself.)

2. Write down where you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed.

3. Ask yourself if there’s any place in your life where you’re carrying around poop…mentally, physically, or spiritually.

4. Set the crap down. Get the stink out of your life.

5. Ask yourself if you can see the situation from a different perspective. Try it. 

6. Take a little break today. Push the STOP or PAUSE button, and listen to your breath. Listen to your heart and soul.
