LOVE YOUR STRESS!!!
This may sound crazy to some of you but we have to love our stress. Why should we love our stress? Our stress is there for us to learn to be better. Our stress is there for us to learn how to handle things better.
What happens when we love our stress? When we love our stress, as crazy as that sounds, we can move away from wallowing in it. We have a choice, we can love our stress or we can wallow in it.
If we wallow in our stress we think, "Oh, woe is me, poor poor me," or we think, "Oh my gosh, this is so terrible, this is the worst thing that could happen to me."
If we love our stress, we can say, "I love this, that really sounds silly, but at least I am not wallowing in it," or we can say, "I love this because I am gonna focus on what I need to learn, on what I want, and on what will help me focus forward."
Let our stress administer to our education.
When I say, to myself, "I love this stress," I laugh at myself and think, "That is sooo silly." But, guess what? It helps me move in another direction rather than focusing on my stress.
Next time you have a stressful situation, talk to yourself. Tell yourself that you love this, laugh, and then move in another direction. I am not really telling you to love your stress, I am telling you to stop wallowing in it. Clever? Silly?
Just call me cleverly silly.
Until next post, don't forget to have fun and be playful!
