Behind the Song: Overbooked & Out of Breath

Overbooked and out of breath, I hate to take another step backwards. Overbooked and out of breath, so I, so I only run faster. 🏃‍♀️

Behind the song…
“Overbooked and Out of Breath”

(Click here to listen)

I wrote this song because we live in a culture that feels so incredibly demanding of our time.

Contrary to popular belief… you cannot be everything to everyone all of the time.

Sometimes it’s hard to recognize when you are burning out.

Or worse — you recognize the fact, but choose to ignore it completely.

Sometimes instead of pausing and taking time to refresh, we only run faster and push ourselves harder, thinking the stress will go away on its own.

If you feel like you’re living in a constant state of stress and overwhelm, maybe it’s time to evaluate the things that take up the most time and energy in your life.

“It’s okay to say NO. You’re saying YES to SOMETHING ELSE.”

This is literally my mantra ALL. THE. TIME.

Please never underestimate the time you need to slow down and rest in the Lord.

There are times I have been guilty of feeling “too busy” to make that time for myself, but when I do….

It makes a whole world of difference.

Slow things down for a minute and focus on the people and things that really matter most.
