I have a mean case of information overload right now. So much so, that I can barely write this newsletter. My brain is so full that nothing is going in and nothing is going out. It’s a rush-hour traffic jam.

Too much planning, too many logistics, too many thoughts trying to elbow their way through the crowds in my head.

So I’m going to keep this brief {sigh of relief from readers}. For two reasons.

One, because I’m feeling so overloaded I can’t even think. You know the feeling well. It’s paralyzing.

Two, because I want the time back to relieve my little brain of having to carry this heavy load and get my information organized.

I urge you to do the same. Here are some resources I found to help a sister out.
