Sometimes you "can't see the forest for the trees". We have all had these moments. Some of our experiences of not seeing the forest for the trees may have been that we were overseeing the details in a situation because we were so consumed with the totality of it, or it could have been that we couldn't see a situation for what it really was, instead we got lost in the details, and lost perspective or focus on the bigger issue. In short, we can get blinded by the situation we are fully involved in.

In this day-to-day life, there will always be issues needing immediate attention. These issues are designed to take all your time and energy, making it hard for you to focus on the larger problems which are causing the smaller ones or hinder you from focusing on any projects, tasks, goals, and activities you have in mind. In this particular situation, I am being bombarded with all the details of moving - packing, cleaning, scheduling and transferring services, unpacking, setting up, and so on, and so on. I have not been able to focus on my online business.

In conclusion, I can say this, I am almost there, I am beginning to see the light shining through the very tall trees, with large vines that cling around the trunks, green foliage covering the ground for miles - I think in two weeks, I will be seeing a tropical forest. What type of forest will you be seeing after you get done looking at the trees?

I agree, we sometimes get bombarded with daily happenings and get caught up in the miniscule topics of life and forget the big picture.
Maybe we should change the saying to “ we can’t see the forest for the “Gump”
Lol.

Hi Stephen,
I like that. 👍 Hope you are having an awesome Friday.

I understand the overwhelming feeling and all that goes with it when moving. I've been through it!

The forest will soon be nice and clear, and the sun shining brightly but gently on you, Faye.

Hi Valerie,
Yes, moving is such a tedious process, but I am almost there. Thank you for the kind, encouraging words.

Hello Faye, You are so right in your analogy, seeing through the thick forest can be daunting looking at it right in front of us. Then we see a ray of light shining through which reminds us our world is not so small and that we have a plan bigger than what obstacles lay in front.

Keep at it, you are doing great!

Kind regards
Erica

Hi Erica,
I like how you stated that, "we have a plan bigger than what obstacles lay in front of us", and knowing that enables us to work through our issues; it is that motivation that pushes us through. Thanks for sharing 👍

You are so welcome Faye, I wish your move goes smoothly as possible.

Thank you 😊

There’s so much to keep learning but with time and patience, you will be alright. Moving is overwhelming. Take all the time you need. Hang in there.
