10 March 2014

Sometimes you have a week or a weekend where everything goes great, you hair looks good, you new profile pic on Facebook gets a ton of likes, your boss tells you that you are doing great, but other weeks, well, they're not so great.

You try and dye your ombred hair blue and it just goes black.  You have fight after fight with your partner, over nothing.  Your kids just won't do what they are told.

You know what you should do?

Roll with it.

Life is swings and roundabouts and sometimes it aint all that pretty.

But its the only life we have.

We don't get to hit Control Alt Delete and start again, so jus troll with it.

It'll get bettter.

Things will come around again and you will wonder why you bothered fussing and worrying.

I know, I know. Easier said than done, but just as you practise getting better playing the guitar, or learning a new language, or playing on a football team, the more you practise getting less stressed, the less stressed you will be.

Stress doesn't help.  Worrying only makes you feel worse.

If you can do something to change the situation you are in, then do it, change that up and make a difference.  But if it is out of your control?  You know what, don't waste time stressing.  Just cooncentrate on what you can do to change things, and let everyone else look after their bit of the situation. 

You have hit a bad point in your relationship, you feel things are a little stale? Maybe getting a bit bored?  Well try date night, organise a dinner for the two of you, do something you did together when you started dating, remind yourselves why you got together.

You think work isn't going so great, ask about traning courses in work, or see if you can do an extra class at night, speak to your boss about getting extra responsibilities, or less responsibilities if you have too many.  Ask if you can have a performance review and see if things can be changed up.

You haven't got enough time to meet up with friends?  Have them over to your house for dinner? Or organise a brunch at the weekend.  Everyone can bring a dish and you can all catch up.

Hit a plateau in your weightloss/fitness plan?  relax, its not the end of the world.  Eat a little more for a day or two, try a new class, go for a run, buy yourself some new training gear, look back at pictures from last year and realise how far you have come.  learn to focus on how far you have come, rather than how far you have left to go.

Its hard, I am learning to do this too.

I have a few mantras I repeat to myself, in this kind of situation it is "Thy will be done".  It helps me.  What helps you?
