There’s a limit to how much we can handle.

I like to do stuff. You probably do too. As does just about everyone else. But there’s a limit to how much of it we can actually do. Our bandwith isn’t infinite.

There are only so many things we can be doing at any given time—too many and it becomes a never-ending to-do list full of anxiety. And there’s also a limit to how big those things can be—too big and just starting feels intimidating and futile.

Sadly, I don’t have any mind blowing thoughts or suggestions. I just wanted to type this out so I can maybe remember it the next time I feel bad about having reached my limit and still wanting to do more. Because I think that I’m actually doing pretty well. And you probably are too.
