We as human beings often do not acknowledge stress as if it will acknowledge something that is wrong with us or that we are lesser now that we have acknowledged it. This is not only an insecure attribute, it is also an unhealthy attribute.
Stress is just a part of our life. If we view as so, we give it less power. An important practice is to view stress as a spectrum most people ignore and repress the acknowledgement for 9/10 of the entire spectrum until the 1/10 comes along that we are entirely stressed out. When this happens we hear comments of “I don’t know why I am crying all the time” or “I find myself losing my temper all the time.”
In serving our community, we find it very effective to take inventory of our stress load and the stresses in our life throughout the entire spectrum. This allows us to manage our life rather than have our life manage us.
Whether we like it or not we have power over our life. Make it great!
