How to be sane when you are overwhelmed with tasks?

I dug up something in my writings. For all those people who wonder if I ever get irritated at the world around. You may find your answer here. The thing is, with every passing day, I am more mindful of the way I live. Though, I am tired and lose physical strength in handling two kids (both below 4 years of age), I manage to have a sane mind and mental courage to get back to normal state.

The below had happened when Ananya was 2 yr 2 months. I was 1 month pregnant with Anindya. So, I had the usual first trimester tiredness in that phase. I also believe: If you look for reasons, you find hundreds of them. If you look for solution, you find just the one you need.

Last one month(little less than that) seemed to be experimental in my life. A started asking me to carry her every single moment, inside the home, outside, everywhere, even while I was getting tired. Obviously, she doesn't know that point and 2 year old does not have a fully developed brain to think from another person's perspective and act accordingly. You can read about empathy here.

She was simply being her own self. Though I knew all these scientific and spiritual facts right, I too, fell in the trap of getting irritated. Thankfully, it was never shown on anyone around, specially A. It was only that I started being irritable, though I did all that she wanted me to do, deep within, I was some how feeling mentally bad and physically weak at the same time. Mentally bad because I realised I was not fully dedicated to the mundane tasks. I was somehow left uninspired, empty-minded and behaviourally routine for a week or so.

Only after analysing what was going on in my mind did I realise that I was getting back what I had in mind. We attract circumstances that are similar to our mental state at any point of time. I was irritable, I attracted irritable scenarios, had ill health, lacked inspiration, attracted forgetfulness, the type of activities I do for myself had changed.

Yes, knowing some facts is different from realising them which is even more different from putting them into practice. I thought over, chalked out points on how my mind wandered in the wrong direction and how I could have avoided it.

After a detailed introspection, all I have to share is:

  • When we are joyfully carrying out our routine, we never feel the pain. When you are unhappy with something, you attract pain that causes weakness and irritation in turn.
  • How ever old we keep growing, when we are around a 2 year old, we ought to be pure hearted and behave as another 2 year old with her. Become a child when with one, only then you can experience the child's joy.
  • Whatever your physical status is, strong mind and joyful heart are the two things needed to keep up your health.
