Are You Waiting in Agony?

Stressed Woman

Waiting can be agonizing. Or it could be a relief.

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post because I’ve been going through some personal issues. In the last few months, I’ve had to do a lot of running around. I felt relief when the process was done, but now I’m waiting to hear from another party. 

The main issue with waiting for others is that things are not in my control. It’s one thing to be running around like a chicken with my head cut off, trying to achieve something. It’s quite another thing to be waiting for someone else to take action. 

So what do we do, so we don’t go crazy? 

  • Accept that the situation is not in your control. True acceptance will calm your mind. 
  • Get back into your routine. You may have missed paying some bills. Do your food shopping. Get back into your cleaning routine. 
  • Return to your lifestyle. What was your life like before you started running  in circles?  Did you enjoy reading, walking, cooking? Get back to that.
  • Indulge in your guilty pleasures. I love to sprawl on the couch and watch my favorite shows while eating ice cream. Whatever takes your mind South, do it.

The idea is to return to your life. If you have built a life based on your values, then you have joy. Get back to that. Whatever you’re waiting for will come at the right time. Believe that and keep moving! 

You’ll be glad you did!

Accept the Changes

Woman Breathe

I’ve been away for a couple of weeks, taking care of life issues. No matter how many plans we make, things happen to derail us. Rather than stressing over the fact that we can’t keep our normal routines, we need to take measures to keep our sanity.

~Take a breath and slow down. Take a moment to plan your new path.

~Accept the change in your lifestyle. It’s probably temporary.

~Learn what you can from the new situation.

Acceptance is the key to change. You may not be happy about your situation, but by taking these steps you’ll make adjustments with more ease.

You’ll be glad you did!

Rolling with Life’s Changes

Woman Exercise

I recently had to make some hard decisions about what was and wasn’t working my life. I had to accept that some things I tried to accomplish didn’t work out. Then I made changes.

How do you do that?

1 – Don’t push yourself to make an overnight decision. Take some time to let your thoughts flow. The answers are inside you. Let them come to you naturally.

2 – Make a list of what changes you need to make. Then, make them one at a time. Don’t try to make all the changes at once.

3 – Enjoy your updated life! You’ve just rolled with life’s changes!

You’ll be glad you did!

What Stories Are In Your Head?

Woman Imagination

Have you ever anticipated a bad situation that turned out to be good? For example, you think the next time you see your old boyfriend, you will have an argument. Then when you actually run into him, you’re glad to see him and feel nothing but friendship.

That’s because we build stories in our minds based on old emotions, self-doubt and fear.

Another example – You’re going on a job interview. You’ve already decided you won’t get the job. Then you’re surprised when they hire you. Your emotions were built from believing you’re not good enough.

How do you pull away from the fear and anxiety of future events? Face those situations without any expectations. We don’t know what other people are thinking. We don’t know how they may have changed since our last encounters. After all, haven’t you changed over the years?  

This doesn’t mean every situation will be positive, but we can lessen the stress of anticipation…the stories in our heads.

Face situations without expectations. You’ll be glad you did!
