Greetings my friend...Happy Monday ;-)

I hope you had a wonderful Weekend.

Today, like every day, I am very grateful, I am especially grateful for all of you on my Newsletter list.

One thing I know for sure is no matter how devastating or how stressful our situation is, we can handle it! It may not seem like it at the time and if we could hold the thought of, "we can handle it," it may make things a little easier.

Many of us have been through the worst of financial, emotional, physical, mental, or even spiritual stress and we survived. Why do we survive? We survive because we have no choice.

The stress comes in when we create the thoughts about our situation. If we have the belief, and attitude, that we will handle it and we can handle it, then the stress lessens.

Guard your thoughts and beliefs in stressful times. Remember that you can handle it and you will lighten your burden. It sounds simple, and it is not easy by any means but, if we put it into practice it will get easier.

I have heard so many people talk about all the stress and hard times that they have been through and yet they survive. Think of all you have been through and notice that you can handle it because you have. You are still here, alive and kicking.

I believe, one of the greatest things about being stressed out, over a situation, is what we can learn. The supreme lesson is that the thoughts of fear and worry about the worst thing that can happen does increase our stress. Therefore, thoughts of faith and confidence that the best outcome will occur does decrease our stress. And, if we take action towards the best possible outcome, our faith and confidence will increase, even more, and our stress will then decrease further, as well.

The goal is to get better and better, at life, as we age, and that includes getting better at managing our stress.

Thank you for all of the emails.

I am so very grateful for you!!!

Have a wonderful week!

Until next week, don't forget to have fun and be playful!
