OPEN for Discussion!
I am touching on a tough topic today!
The world we live in is fast-paced and pretty much 24/7/365! Plus you have technology at your fingertips.
How does one find that balance and/or happy medium among the craziness and just trying to live life one day at a time?
I know I have days where I just do not want to deal with it! I want to hide my head under the covers and have a blue mood. Honey, just slip me a candy bar under the covers before you leave please!
Then there are those days where you feel like a cat on a hot tin roof, a dog chasing its tail or a chicken running in circles going nowhere fast! I am talking stressed out and overwhelmed as well as at times a little panicky and anxiety stricken. The last thing you want to do is plaster a smile on your face and solider on!
I know I stand in my own way when it comes to being positive and finding happiness in my life! However, I also know I need to take control of my life and give myself a break to recharge too; physically, mentally and spiritually. There is nothing better than giving yourself a “time out”. Sometimes you need that “time out” because you are not all that pleasant to be around!
The hardest lesson for me is letting go of control, especially when I have no control in a situation! I know my rational self and emotional self play mind tricks with each other and at times it is not a pretty sight. Another aspect that comes into play is when you do not listen to yourself, but what others think. Having an opinion is great as well as having differences just do not feed into it too much!
Remember to reflect what you want in your life and let the rest just bounce off of you! It is AMAZING what you do to yourself and your body and not in a good or healthy way at times!
Here is What I am Practicing In My Life:
- Learning to LOVE Myself for WHO I Am
- Cleaning Up My Emotional House
- Becoming More In Tune With My Emotional Self
- Focusing On What I Do Have – Appreciating It – Being Grateful
- Letting Go & Just Being in the Moment
