Stressful things can only be stressful if we allow them to. Sometimes what we make of a situation can have a completely different outcome if we take the time to sit back and think before reacting. It’s interesting because I have a special needs child who rarely thinks before acting and does things that most people would find inappropriate. She doesn’t really have the ability to sit back and find her center, as she has never met her center. Her mind is over active and it’s hard for her to calm down to find that center, so when looking at things sometimes we often overlook the fact that we can do this; while being grateful that we have this ability in the first place. Sometimes the small things are the most important in life.
So if you are sitting around following information and getting frustrated no matter what your situation is. It’s more than important to take that time to decompress. When you feel like your temperature gauge is getting to high, it’s time to save face before you work yourself up into a frenzy and do anything you may regret! Take a walk, play games with the kids, have a picnic, visit your grandchildren, do something creative, mediate, be in nature, or whatever floats your boat and toots your horn. Walk away from those things that have you all uptight and in a knot. Even if it’s just for 10 minutes!
When we take the time to do this we are being the Conscious Objective Observer of our own experience. We are watching ourselves from the outside in, instead of just from the inside out. We create our reality around us by that which we project. So when you’re feeling upset, frustrated, down, angry, or just plain tired of things, that is your doorbell letting you know it’s time to find your happy place again. It’s time to find those things that relieve that stress and frustration in your lives so you can have a peaceful day without losing yourself in the process.
