This is a question that at some point, if you haven’t already, you’ll ask yourself. Why? Because the time comes when you think, deeper than ever, bigger than ever.
When life showed up for me there was a lot of great moments, laughter and healing. And there was a lot of chaos, stress and moments that made me want to pull my hair out and throw an epic tantrum. Yes, I admit it – I still throw tantrums! LOL
At first, I felt overwhelmed and wanted to flat out give up. I just couldn’t though. That little voice in my spirit and heart just wouldn’t let me. It kept whispering to me that I was and am bigger than the circumstances. I was and am better than any one thing that hurts my feelings. I’m strong enough, wise enough and capable enough to handle anything that I experience.
The more I remember that truth, the better I feel and the easier I respond to whatever is happening. I’m able to take the good from the things that happen and celebrate them. I’m able to take lessons from the challenging moments and learn from the wisdom and knowledge.
It all boils down to self kindness – taking time to honor yourself, time to appreciate yourself, time to celebrate the big and the small, being compassionate and understanding of yourself, the same as you’d extend to someone else.
So…I’ve shared one of my secret weapons in dealing with the roller coaster called life. Tell me, how do you respond when life shows up?
