Overcoming Stress: Successful Living The Easy Way
So many of us live a stressful life. Unfortunately, when we are unable to take the time that we all need to nurture ourselves we fall victim to self?pity, depression, or burn-out.
What we all really need to snap-out-of-it is a few minutes or a few hours of self-serving attention and pampering. (Or maybe more like an extended vacation!)
We live in such a fast-paced society that we are not always permitted the time that we all require to be whole, happy and healthy human beings.
But who really puts those time constraints on us?
Since when did we start letting others control our time and our destiny?
I know that when I was much younger that there was no way possible that anyone else could tell me what and when I should do anything.
But as many of us get older we begin to mellow and accept the fact that in order to get ahead in life we need to conform a little more. (ouch)
In reality, that is probably a good thing for us. But sometimes we go too far, and we forget about feeding our own inner free-spirits.
Sometimes, we just need to play.
Let's take a little time to get back to what is real. Let's remember to listen to our inner voices and begin once again to feed and care for our inner free-spirits.
Youth is wonderful because of it's freedom and because it's a time of less responsibility.
Maturity, hopefully, brings security and success, due mostly to increased realization of responsibility and our acceptance of it.
Is there a happy medium? Can we find both a care-free attitude while still fulfilling our responsibilities that lead to security?
In our journey to achieve just that, we may indeed discover our own immortality.
For after all, it's through living life to it's fullest that we all may discover our own piece of heaven, right here on earth.
Remember each and every day to count your blessings. And remember that it is up to you to take care of your responsibilities, but also know that it is essential that you feed your own soul with the things that truly make life worth living.
There is a time and purpose for everything. It is in achieving balance in all things that we find true happiness.
So take a little time each day to take care of the things in your life that must be tended to. But also remember that your need to be care-free, your need to play is also part of your responsibility as well.
Do not allow others to dictate your life. It is only by giving to others joyfully and without resentment that your true humanity is revealed.
Be your own Master. Acknowledge your own Inner Truth. Listen to your Soul. For only you hold the ultimate power to your own personal fulfillment.
It is by taking care of your own needs first that you can truly begin to give to others.
You are worthy.
Claim it. Know it. Be it.
