Life is Messy
I have been so busy. With work, teenagers, family, dogs, neighbours and friends I feel a little overwhelmed with all I do. I feel overwhelmed with all that I want to do. Have you “over-done” it this New Year.
This time of year, can be stressful. The reality of the holiday season can seem to contradict the images of love and joy and relaxation plastered over Facebook. The heat (here in Australia), family issues and dietary changes (celebratory snacks and booze) can contribute to the not so festive season.
My lesson and learning is that I am not very good at doing too much for others and not enough for myself. I just do not cope. Does that make me selfish??
It is important not to get too lost in your own thoughts of what others think.
At times when I am feeling tired and stressed it is important for me to care more about my thoughts and let go of what others may or may not think. People hurt each other. Sometimes the hurt is intentional and sometimes it is not. It doesn’t matter, it is hurt.
My survival tips include
It is right and proper that we look after our own needs. It is necessary.
A COURSE IN MIRACLES believes that forgiveness is the only path to happiness. Now is the time when we are getting over the journey of 2017 and preparing for voyage of 2018, take time to appreciate the love and the lessons. Be compassionate on your path to happiness and forgive wholeheartedly. Do not forget to forgive yourself and acknowledge the wisdom that grows from pain. We are all wounded. We all have stories. We all have a past.
When forgiving remember
This time of year, it is important to reflect on yesterday, let go and plan for tomorrow. It is time to reset your course to align with your emerging self. Forgive and move forward – it will benefit you at home and at work.
