Do you stress too much?
If you want to know how to reduce stress and simply be happy, read on.
It might be as easy as changing your perspective.
Are you a planner? I am. I love lists, check marks, and time management. I literally geek out about these things. So when someone tells me not to plan out my life, I get the shakes.
However, the longer I’m here, the more I see and learn that life can not be planned out completely. Oh you can try (and believe me, I have), but life will throw you a curve ball at some point which can lead to stress.
I’ve also learned that some of the absolute best things will happen unplanned. I can attest that two of the worst things that happened to me: my divorce and losing my job, were two of the best things for me. And they were certainly unplanned.
Trust the process
We are on a journey. If you can just step back and see your life from that perspective, it can change everything in your life for the better.
Life is not perfect and you are not meant to be perfect. You’re here to learn….about who you are and how you can help the whole. And you’re here to grow.
Be open to the twists and turns in life. Trust the process! Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. (It means you’re in a growth phase!!) And make a conscious effort to do better each day. You’re not in a competition with everyone else, no matter what marketers try to tell you. All you need to do is try to improve on your own performance from yesterday.
Get in a growth phase. Spread your wings. Feel the wind on your face. And Laugh. Life doesn’t need to be so serious. So go have fun.
