Sometimes life just overtakes us. It is part of the modern human experience. Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching tells us that overwhelm is common. Well, great… Now what? Dawn Kotzer, Kaizen-Muse master coach, shares this bit of helpful experience: When Overwhelm shows up in Dawn’s life, she greets it, reminds herself that it is just Overwhelm! Okay. Rather than fighting Overwhelm, Dawn accepts it as a part of life and gets on with whatever she’s doing. When I accept Overwhelm, treat it as a companion rather than an enemy, I feel a bit more energized, a bit more capable of working with the overwhelm rather than against it. “Hello Overwhelm.”
