>> Just A Thought <<
My response is always more powerful than my circumstance. A tiny part of my life is decided by completely uncontrollable circumstances, while the vast majority of my life is decided by my responses. Where I ultimately end up is heavily dependent on how I play the hands I’ve been dealt.

- with my value of insight, Every so often, I tend to find myself stressed over certain tasks. I notice my t-do list is growing, the clock is ticking faster and faster, and my mind starts racing. This can happen at the end of a workday, or if a list of chores at home piles up. I start breathing faster and feel like I am getting further away from my goals.
When I tend to stress from time to time as well, the easiest method to make myself better in the moment is to slow myself down. Make sure I am taking deep breaths, and do whatever possible to calm my mind. Remind myself there are enough hours in a day to do everything possible, and everything will be okay.
While this won’t make all my pending work disappear, it will better prepare me to tackle my responsibilities. It is a truly rare occasion when I am actually in a troublesome predicament with tasks or chores, so I need to remind myself that I will get everything done and keep moving forward, I always do.
