Do you ever feel like you are hitting your head (bam!) against a wall and you just can't stop (bam!) yourself. It's a really hard wall like cement (bam!) and slightly crumbly like it's been there since the dawn of time (bam!). And you can't stop even though it's very painful (bam!) and embarrassing since, well, stupidity is somewhat embarrassing.
I always take on more than I am able (bam!) then wonder why I'm miserable and paralyzed with stress (bam!) and end up with a crippling migraine (bam!).
I've heard people say, "my cup runneth over!" delighted by the overflow of goodness. I'm leaning toward a different metaphor. My plate is very, very full. My food is bulging off my plate (bam!) and onto my nice tablecloth (bam!). The peas are attacking me (bam!) and the gravy cannot be stopped! My arms aren't big enough (bam!) and soon I'm smothered in gross gravy goop!
So, I de-goop (bam!). Simplifiy (bam!). Break some committments (bam!). Rectify any dissappointed feelings (bam!). And finally stop (bam!) banging (bam!) my precious (bam!) head....ahhh!
Someday I'll learn the wisdom of saying "no."
