As I take a brief break I ponder the fact that there are certain things in life that are sure to bring stress.. and perhaps at times there are many good stressors (also known as eustress). ... yet sometimes events occur that perhaps put us on the fine line of whether or not to stress about them... it is with these we have a choice. Sometimes writing, reading and praying about them brings perspective.... sometimes we act too quickly.. sometimes we dwell too much. I am mindful of the importance of faith, hope, love, friendship, and taking occasional breaks in the day so as not to stress out about that which may bring stress, but to focus on the positive, the situation, and come up with solutions. Such solutions may be directed at the self, and/ or others. Yet sometimes we need to pause, breathe, go for a run, pray, or just take a step back to ponder that which brings unrest to the heart and soul. Just a little food for thought.
"There are thousands of causes for stress... one antidote to stress is self expression."
Perhaps the blog and personal journals are one beautiful venue for self expression?!
Blessings to anyone who stops by
