Fed up, Tired and Ready to Call it Quits!
Too often, people get so caught up in the heat of the moment or their painful emotions that they simply throw in the towel and are ready to call it quits. "I just want to pull the plug and put an end to it all," a client once said. It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed at times. We all go through the emotions of loss, sorrow, anger, frustration and anxiety at one time or another. And sometimes
it gets the better of us but don't feel stressed after all, we are not robots. We are filled with all sorts of "feelings". That is called being human. How you convert those feelings is a whole different story.
As a prime example, have you ever had one of those days where your tire blew enroot to work, followed by a very stress-filled work day, only to come home to discover that your water pipes have sprung a major leak? For that split second, you probably feel like you have been hit by a MAC truck. Why did this have to happen to you? Actually, it is not happening to you. It is simply happening. These are events over which you have no control. However, you have control over how you react in these situations.
How do you react? That's a good question. You probably initially react like some folks. Your palms get sweaty, you feel a pit growing in your stomach, and you get an overwhelming urge to just scream at the top of your lungs. Okay, so now that you have done that, do you wallow in that moment or do you forage onward and start working on a resolution? Like Forrest Gump said, "It happens." Life, that is. Whether you suffer a personal loss or you encounter extraordinary circumstances, you must determine the appropriate course of action.
Take a step back and really think about what is occurring around you. Is it something that you did, or something that was done specifically to you? Or is it something that simply happened?
When you take the time - even if it is just a few minutes - to calm and clear your mind, you can sift through the madness and find the answer that you need to resolve the situation. A good way to maintain a level head during times of stress is to practice daily meditation so that you do not always react in haste or with feelings of overwhelm. Through daily meditation, you train your body, mind and soul to work in unison. Meditation is also one of the healthiest and natural ways to reduce blood pressure, daily anxiety and headaches. If you decide to invite meditation into your life, you will find that next time when "life happens", you will not be so ready to throw in the towel and call it quits.
I have created six (6) powerful and helpful meditations that have been made available to you on this blog site for free. I am sure few of you have taken advantage of them because the comments that I have received back are irrelevant and in most cases it was necessary for me to send them to ���trash' because they were spam. I have taken the time to give you a sense of hope and the opportunity to experience new possibilities within your lives through the various articles on this site and
of course the meditations but it is up to you to take what has been given freely and allow it to help you change and grow in awesome ways; for when you do, you will be
filled with great joy and excitement. You see, in reality, there is no reason to
feel fed-up or to even call it quits you actually have so much to live for!
