The UN-word is a word that you are rejecting for the new year. You would like to Un-Do it.
My un-word is....
past tense: overwhelmed; past participle: overwhelmed
bury or drown beneath a huge mass
- defeat completely
- give too much of a thing to (someone); inundate.
- have a strong emotional effect on.
- be too strong for; overpower.
Or I guess it would have to be un-overwhelm, right?
Then the pile grows, and I feel more overwhelmed and the stress increases.
This year though, I am going to accept that I cannot fix it all at once. That it is okay to start small by breaking up the project into small chunks and slowly working through it.
A few days ago, I cleared out one corner of our mudroom and returned all the shoes, bags, toys and other things to where they were suppose to go in the house. There is still a lot more organizing to do, but it is a start. Now when I look at the room I focus on the possibilities for the space, and feel un-overwhelmed.
It's a good beginning for the year.
What would your un-word be?
