Just a small post today to address the craziness that is going on lately.
Life is uncertain. Nothing is guaranteed and things don’t always go to plan. It’s an anxious time.
What has helped me …
However, one thing that has helped me throughout my life is trying to live by these words:
“I can’t control the things that happen, but I can control how I react”
Of course to an extent we have control over what happens … but for the most part we just have to have hope and trust in our paths. Trying to control our thoughts or the way we feel is tough, I won’t deny it. I 100% struggle with it at times.
But we do have the power to make a choice.
Sometimes it helps to recognise and acknowledge that some thoughts, moods and actions no longer serve us well.
Then instead replace them with more helpful, loving and productive thoughts and actions which can really help how we feel through these uncertain times.
Another thing that has helped me…
Since the start of the year I have been journalling again. Everyday I write down a minimum of 3 good things, any 3 things! This can be: something good I did, achieved or am grateful for that day. So that even on the worst days I find the good in life.
Some days I can write down 8 things and some days I struggle to find 3 things to think of but I always have to do at least 3 – that is my rule to myself.
I hope that you’re staying safe and well through all this mayhem. I know things are tough. But we will get through this together. Lots of love ❤️
