10 Things I’ll Try to Remember When I’m Overwhelmed. [List]

20 Apr


  1. Love – I will not forget to offer love to those who are overwhelmed. I will remember my roots.
  2. Joy – I may not be feeling it now. But I will be thankful when this valley is over and I am able to experience happiness.
  3. Peace – I will rest during this time and try to be easy on my heart, soul, and mind.
  4. Patience – Somehow, this will make me stronger. With patience and perseverance I will take it upon myself to learn the lesson of my struggle.
  5. Kindness – I will help others when they are feeling overwhelmed. Just as I have been helped.
  6. Goodness – I will make an effort to act nicely even though I may have things hitting me from every direction.
  7. Faith – I will trust that the Lord has a purpose and a plan for this trial. No matter how crazy it seems.
  8. Gentleness – Just because I am overwhelmed does not mean I have to make others suffer. I will strive to be gentle throughout the tempest.
  9. Grace – I will accept it of myself. I’m perfectly imperfect, and that’s perfectly okay.
  10. Self-control – I will try to walk my talk. It is up to me to practice the previous nine promises.

    Yes, these are great things to remember! I must try to keep this list in mind. What are some items that you would add? Self-compassion and hope are huge for me.
