I’ve been thinking a lot lately about drama, gossip and stress. We all hear over and over about how detrimental stress is to our health, but how do we know if we’re creating that stress ourselves?
How do you respond to the problems that you face in your life and the drama that surrounds you every day? Everyone has different stressors to deal with including time shortages, money, exhaustion, whiny children, grumpy spouses, ailing parents, and gossipy co-workers. How do you deal with each of these problems when they come your way?
Do you make things worse by spreading gossip or letting someone else’s worries make you upset?
Do you worry too much about things that are not in your control?
Do you keep a positive outlook and spread happiness wherever you go? (Good golly I wish I was like this!)
I would love to be calm all the time and not worry so much. I recently did a survey on Facebook. (Yes, I could have used that time better I’m sure.) The response was that I am a UBER Practical person. Too me this means that I am reliable, honest, a planner and also that I WORRY TOO MUCH!!
One of my new goals is to try and choose to be happy with what I have and where I am at on a daily basis. Call it a midlife crisis or just exhaustion but I’m tired of always being unhappy with things I can’t control. Yes, the saying is true..life is too short to let little things bother you. I am positive that worry takes years off people’s lives. We worry about eating too much bad food, not exercising enough, raising our kids properly and so much more and in the end what do we have to show for it?! We’re all good mothers and good people and are deserving of a happy life.
So it’s time to find my happy place and start dreaming again.
I’m tired of being locked into the RULES of this society, of perpetuating drama and worry. I want to feel like a child again and be able to see the beauty in EVERYTHING.
What do you say…are you with me? I really hope so!
