After being stuck in what feels like a parallel universe for the past two years, consumed by daily case numbers, chaotic restrictions and disruptive announcements, once everything was "back to normal", my ambitious personality took over as I thrust myself into work.
I've been head down bum up for the past 12 months with tunnel vision to grow my business. It was in the last week of December, while hitting submit on my 11th fiction novel, a wave of uneasiness hit me like a tonne of bricks - I am overwhelmed.
From growing my business to writing a new book, managing employees and planning for a holiday, thinking about all I have to do before the end of the year and the persistent voice yelling there's still so much more to learn, do and achieve.
I'd managed to suppress the internal chit-chat for the past year, but I can't ignore it anymore. Especially when I continued hearing from clients, they were also feeling overwhelmed.
If you, too, are feeling overwhelmed, before you throw your laptop against the wall, I invite you to pause, rest and reset.
In our latest podcast and blog article, "I am overwhelmed", I share my experience with author paralysis as well as tips for reducing the anxiety, dread and panic while maintaining a sense of calm in the hustle culture of writing and publishing.
