“A man begins cutting his wisdom teeth the first time he bites off more than he can chew.” Herb Caen

Have you ever started something new full of enthusiasm and passion only to get overwhelmed by the whole thing to the extent that you ask yourself “What was I thinking?”  I know I have been there, frustrated to the point of wanting to throw it all out the window, jump in bed and pull the covers over my head.  I have learned though to allow myself some time and then go back to the project with fresh eyes. If I am overwhelmed is there someone I can ask for help?  Are my expectations reasonable?  Am I being just too darn hard on myself? With an honest approach I get the answers I need, move forward and usually in the end I am very glad I did.  The exception however can be when I plan the perfect family outing but that is a Susanism for another day.
