It's that time of the year weddings, proms, graduations etc... so much going on. I myself have been quite the busy little bee (as my good friend Sis. Susan Sanborn says...Love her!). In all the hustle and bustle of my day to day life, I must still breath...ahhh! Sometimes we wish there is button would could push to take away all the stress. Consequentely during this time when we are feeling overwhelmed it's always good to step back and just look at the situation; size it up and start to cut out what is deemed important and what is not. Many times we feel as though we have taken on too many responsibilities, leaving us overwhelmed, anxious and stressed.

If you acknowledge the fact that you are in over your head, you can fix the problem and begin to lift the burden off of your shoulders. So, if you are overwhelmed right now, close your eyes, take a deep breath, find a quiet spot, and prioritize. It’s nearly impossible to see how to get out of the situation if we don't look at the situation. That’s why the solution is to stop for a moment, take a step back, and let go of your desperate grip.

Another way is to hire a planner this will help remove alot of the stresses the person is carrying, How? because the planner will deal with the day to day phone calls you have to make, the running around and also keep the client calm.  I myself have learned over the past 6 months to fall back and let God have total control. If I am a bundle of nerves and anxiety how could I possbily help a bride, mother who is preparing a sweet 16, or plan a cooperate event. I simply cannot, I trust the word of God and that has always helped me out, and in doing that I have accumlulated more work than ever, because my clients see the peace of God all over me. The word of God says in Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed (anchored) on Thee, because he trusteth in Thee.

Although sometimes its not planning an event; it could be financial, relationship, family, sickness but always remeber God is able, so stay anchored in the Lord and you will have peace, its no better place. I have more peace in my life now than I have ever experienced in the past and it's all because I stay anchored in the Lord.
