The holidays do this to me. I think about my family, what they mean to me and the impact they have had on my life. I think about the day my kids were born, our bonding time, when I met my husband, how I connect with the special people in my life.
See family is not just blood relatives... To me, it' s those people who are there when we need them, who look out for you, who answer the call even if you haven' t talked in a while, it's those wonderful souls who love you for who you are faults and all....and they don' t put you in a line and choose, you are always in the circle.
Getting things done, reaching goals, doing projects can be overwhelming at times.When you enlist others, you get more time, more hands and more ideas that could lead to a better product, meet goals faster or just cleaning out the garage!
Don't be afraid to ask for help, use the skills and experiences of others and share with them as well.The pay off comes with the gift you have given to others by bringing a group together to reach a common goal.
I took some advice from a very good coach...try to eliminate NO from your vocabulary.
Try to change the negative words and phrases into positive sayings or perspectives and options.
You will be amazed at how positive your outlook becomes, how pleasant exchanges are with others. Try it.
Somedays you are blindsided by life (if you read the earlier post about rolling with it, you must have not been looking in the right direction).What to do? Suck in your abs and take it.You may tear up a little, get the breath knocked out of you,
but be calm, try to be positive, stand up
...brush yourself off and get back going wherever life was leading.
Rolling with the things life throws at you may not be easy, but it's better than crawling under a rock and waiting for the thrown thing to go past..at least you are in motion and can dodge whatever else may come you way....and even better, if it's something wonderful you can grab on and go along for the ride.
What is it about everything that makes us worry? And how do you get rid of that haunting little voice...it nags, repeats and sometimes even makes itself into a song.
Does that happen to you?
How do you get rid of it?
I have tried playing louder music, reading a book, going for a run....it always seems to find it's way back.
The only thing that seems to work sometimes, is writing it down..like a journal or talking it out with my partner...it seems to lessen but it still stays. And it doesn't feel the same as stress - worry seems much more emotional and draining...where I find stress, although draining can also be channelled into energy.
