Anyone else ready to freak out? I haven’t left my neighborhood since March 12th, the weather’s been crappy these last few days and the news…well, really flipping depressing, combined with all of the normal stressful things that actually feel really intense right now – I’ve been teetering on the verge. DMX – Gonna Make Me Lose My Mind – feels like my theme song right now.
So, I’ve been really settling into what I know to be true – when life feels especially chaotic, there are two important things to focus on – bringing it back to the basics and focusing forward.
This is “how” you balance and thrive…and honestly, not completely lose your Sh!t (although you may have moments of that too). It’s at the very core of what I teach and how I personally deal with life’s challenging times.
It’s the balance between allowing yourself to feel how you feel while at the same time not getting stuck there. It’s about seeing the disappointment, grieving the loss, feeling the fear – all of those things and at the same time, finding your way forward.
It’s an active process of acceptance and action, of finding peace with while also hoping for, it’s what I learned through 7 years of unexplained infertility and it’s what I’m being reminded to lean into right now.
It’s the framework that I keep coming back to and one that can be helpful to you too.
So, pop on your theme song for this week and keep on reading so that you too can find your way to balance and thrive during this stressful time.
