Stress

I haven’t written a blog post in a long time.  A lot of that reason is due to a feeling of being overwhelmed, stressed.  The amount of cases at work has doubled, my calendar fills up, and loved ones are in the hospital.  How does anyone stay sane through it all?

First of all, I have to let it go.  I cannot control these external factors, and I certainly don’t need to carry these burdens around.  They are not me.  I change my perspective.  I don’t have to feel overwhelmed or stressed.  I choose to feel that way.  I breathe.  I realize I can only do what I can do.

I prioritize what I want in life.  I am beginning by setting small goals. I will find at least five hours per week to work on my manual.  I will speak my affirmations: “There is exactly enough time.  Everywhere I go people and situations are transformed for the better.”  I realize that I deserve time set aside just for me.  And it is true, when I take care of myself, my capacity to help others greatly increases.  How cool is that?
