Ever since I was a little girl I couldn’t wait to grow up and become the boss of me. I had all these dreams which mostly consisted of being a strong independent woman and living life to the fullest. Little did I know that with growth comes responsibilities. These days I find that in everything I do I have to take responsibility; for my health, finances well being and continuous development. Keeping on top of all these things can be quite draining and that’s where the stress starts to kick in.
After attending a few positivity seminars in a bid to take control of my happiness, I was able to consistently apply a few things which has kept me going. The first being learning to laugh, at myself and other things. I do this by sometimes finding humour in some of my actions or watching a comedy. They say laughter is the best medicine and I find this to be true when dealing with stress.
Another thing I picked up was learning to embrace the madness. Resisting what has become makes it hard to deal with the situation clearly. By embracing what is, you can come up with a reasonable solution which will eventually get rid of the problem or lessen it. This could be something as simple as talking over the problem with a friend. You know what they say, a problem shared is a problem half solved.
Finally, I find a way to channel my inner child; you know, that little girl who had all those dreams and once thought she could live life to the fullest. I’m not afraid to be silly, and so I become silly and do silly things like doing a crazy happy dance or even sticking my tongue out literally 😛
