It’s the holiday’s and all around there are concerns people are dealing with that make their lives very challenging.
Each time I hear about a new event, whether it is about something positive or a huge ordeal for someone to deal with, I count my blessings. I have been doing that many times this past week.
But, this morning on TV, I watched a story about a 22 year old girl who was diagnosed with cancer very suddenly. She writes a blog about her experiences with cancer & fears when hurricane Sandy hit NY. Suleika Jaquad ‘s blog is titled, “Life Interrupted.” This story and blog will change your entire perspective on how you should reframe your stress. As I watched her on TV, I felt much more inspired to handle my stuff. Things in my life that were bogging me down, on my mind and adding to my stress.
Not that our stress is any less important that her’s, the point is to realize you or I can endure just about anything & keep going if we believe that we can. The way we do it is unique to each of us. We need to figure out what works for us. To reframe means to restate the seemingly impossible to become an event or issue you can manage one step at a time. Write it down, then build steps to deal with it until you are ready to go onto the next issue.
