Yup! I did...
And... I'm still crazy, just a different funner kind, ask anybody who knows me.
Are you complaining, criticizing, dramatizing, and gossiping?
These are all very stressful habits because of the focus on things that are unpleasant. The opposites would be appreciating, complimenting, and living in the present moment with confidence, which not only provides relief from stress but also lifts the environment in which one stands.
Do you believe in the necessity of focusing on the unpleasant? If you do, that is your human right, and it is very human of you. (wink)
Do you also believe that we have a choice on what we focus on?
Whether a person believes we can choose what to focus on or not, we can. Human nature begs to focus on the emotionally negative aspects of this life which provokes fear, aka stress. Spiritual nature begs for focus on the details that will pursue faithfulness and fearlessness, aka unconditional love.
Practiced fear supplies anger, anxiety, and depression. Practiced faith creates calm, confidence, happiness, joy, vitality, and well-being. When we are practicing faithful and fearless focus we are lifting the environment, and it is impossible to bring anyone down, including the self.
Which will you choose? Faith or Fear? Stress or Well-Being?
Just some thoughts I wanted to throw your way...
Have a wonderful day my dear sweet friend.
God bless you...
I love you...
