In life, there is always a plan B. The real question is, how prepared are you to execute it in the stress of a difficult season in life. I think I figured out a way to be reminded of all the good still in my life the next time things go south.
If it wasn't for the people in my life that I could call on for help in my darkest hour, I would literally be dead. So heed my words today; ask for help when you need it. There are people out there who love you.
I don't know about you, but as I learn how to deal with anxiety as I get older I am starting to see a pattern. Most of the things that make me anxious haven't even happened, and most of those concerns never actually do. So the secret to me getting my anxiety under control seems to stem from living in the present, and letting tomorrow worry about tomorrow.
Today we are honoring the life of George H.W. Bush here in the U.S.A. I may not have agreed with all of his political ideals and decisions, but the man still inspires me because of his hard work and dedication.
The number one reason we feel disqualified is the fact that we disqualify ourselves. Don't cast doubt on yourself needlessly. Others may disqualify us, but why do we let our stress and anxiety commit ourselves to disqualification when we're doing just fine?
I have come to the conclusion that most of the times I can't put down my phone, and I sacrifice real life experiences for what's happening in the digital world, stem from not having experiences I'm interested in living. Find something to do on this awesome day that is by far more interesting than being on your phone.
In a world full of people trying to take, there are still those of us who live our lives to give. Today I want to tell just such a story. So I challenge you to tell someone else a story of something good today. Story telling is contagious.
Life can be confusing at times. As a matter of fact, we can be surrounded by so much noise that it's hard to remember which way is up, where we should be headed. It's times like these when I reach back into the the earliest days of my life and ask myself which things I have always known to be true no matter what.
As I get older, I realize more and more how little my pride means to me. Instead, I recognize more and more how I want to live right, and make the world a better place through leading by example. Respecting those who don't deserve it is the epitome of this lesson. So whether it's the President, the police, a teacher, or your elderly neighbor. Consider offering up some respect. Not because you feel like they deserve it, but because you feel like you deserve it.
I know a lot of us feel pretty accomplished by the amount of tabs we have open in our browsers. It makes us feel busy, and maybe even productive. The truth is, at least for myself, that all these tabs were creating chaos in my day!
Do you ever have a moment where you are insanely proud of yourself for making something awesome? That moment signifies the simple and true fact that other people are going to love it too. After all, they're consumers just like you.
It's so easy to forget what real life is like when we are on holiday and holiday break. Getting back to the normal swing of things is just plain hard to do. Your perspective is everything when it comes to getting back into the daily grind.
