Aaak!!! The pressure is mounting for the upcoming week and month. My calendar is full, just like yours. I have a plethora of new ideas to implement and I am ready to do it all. I am creating great things and I am excited but I admit that I could stress out if I give in to the nagging feeling underneath all my big dreams. So what will I choose? Do I choose to be stressed out or do I choose to just accept what I am able to do as my personal best at this time? Do I allow the stress to win out and stay in bed? Or do I get up and play the game and see how it goes? Each day, I get to choose what voice I feed.
The important thing to remember is that very few things that stress us out truly matter. Most of what we worry about will pass by and won’t be remembered next month or next year. We will forget that we spent one particular day fearing and procrastinating. Very few things in life actually end up being detrimental unless we choose to let it have that effect.
You might thing this is easier said than done or that I am taking a Pollyanna view of life. Maybe I am and maybe it is a bit hard, but I will tell you from personal experience that it is ultimately easier to choose peace and happiness than any other alternative. And so what if it is hard? That which we consistently do becomes easier, so make the right choice and choose happiness. Choose how you feel about the stress in your life. It is not stress unless you call it that, so do not give your power away. Take control and choose what you experience and watch your world change. Let me know how it goes!
