Biting off more than you can chew is an expression that we are all familiar with. When you take a moment and break it down, the idea of being overwhelmed by something positive is at the base of the argument. If you bite off more than you can chew you are taking in something that you have the desire to be a part of. the issue is the quantity. biting off more than you can chew is something that happens when you are too overzealous when you are too anxious. They say that the longest journeys begin with a single step. Biting off more than you can chew is a person on a journey starting in a full sprint and expecting to go the distance. Do not see biting off more than you can chew as the end, see it as an attempt to skip the needed steps to reach the journey that you are set on.
it reminds me of the hero’s journey. For those of you who are not familiar, the hero's journey is a familiar story of an unlikely hero who goes on a journey and in turn is changed or altered by the journey in some way, shape or form. the hero in the hero's journey is not the same person that started the journey as the person who finishes it, but the person who started the journey is the only person who could have completed it.
so see yourself as a hero on a journey, think of biting off more than you can chew as taking the hero at the beginning and throwing them toward the end without the journey in the middle to mold them. Do not be off put by the journey that you are on, it changes you for a reason, it allows you to stand up toward problems and issues that you would normally not be able to handle. We are only biting off more than we can chew when we are in a rush. Slow down, enjoy the journey and do not be alarmed by your change. it is just what you need to get to where you are going.
