Happy Saturday! The past few months have been stressful and overwhelming... add a sassy 4 year old to the mix and life has felt like a never ending roller coaster.
Your mindset can make or break you. Being positive or optimistic doesn’t mean outside factors will never affect you. My engine in my 2014 🤬SUV died, a friend passed away from cancer, my tenant stopped paying rent and I had to evict her (such a process), this was all after I sent her a new fridge and stove, then she stuck my with the water bill, broke the front door etc...not to mention being a mom and business owner and the responsibility that comes with that. Wooooosah.
I reminded myself everyday throughout this trying time that none of this was in my control and I couldn’t allow it to control my thoughts and emotions. My emotions are mine and I can choose to feel defeated or I can choose to use it as a learning experience and see the positive. Was it easy? No way. But was it worth it? Yes! I know that I am in a much better position now than I would be if I let all this stress get me down.
So what did I do?
🌸I set aside time each day for deep breathing and/or meditation and self hypnosis.
🧠 I paid extra attention to my words and thoughts to make sure they remained positive.
🧒 I focused on giving and receiving love to my daughter. Lots of hugs and cuddles.
💆 I massaged my legs to keep my blood flowing.
🥗 Made sure I didn’t stress eat and drink a ton of wine.
🌟 Self pleasure - Orgasms are my best stress reliever.
💃🏻 I made sure to get in my exercise even though I didn’t want to. Moving your body is key 🔑.
I took control of what I could, and didn’t focus on the rest. It took a lot of intention, but it was worth it 😊.
