We made it through one day of the week already and only have four to go before the weekend returns! How was your Monday this week? My day was pretty busy, but nothing I cannot handle. I think y’all know this, but I love it when my workday is busy because it makes the day go by so much faster. Unfortunately, rainy days do cause me to experience more headaches and pain, which is why the weekend was painful for me. The one thing I will never be able to say is the area I live in is experiencing a drought because it rains way too often for that to happen. The great thing about all of us is, we are strong and can handle anything life throws our way!
Of course, our days might come with stress and that is not always easy to deal with. I am trying to learn how to handle stress differently and better. I am slowly learning that sometimes we just need to let go of the stress we are feeling and know that everything is going to happen the way it is supposed to. The reason I decided to use this quote today is that the moment we learn how to fight stress is when we will be able to live a better and healthier life. I am sure you have heard many times before that stress is a silent killer, well if you also have MS or any other autoimmune disorder or health issue, stress aggravates this and makes life even more difficult than it has to be. Life is already challenging enough and stress can be avoided.
Stress is a common issue with so many people. Do you have certain ways that help you deal with stress and if so, what helps you most? I have learned that if I view a situation as something I have no power to change, there is no point worrying about it. Some battles in life that are worth the fight and then many that are not worth our precious time. Maybe that is a negative way to view things, but in my mind it makes sense. I use this way of thinking to avoid arguments as well and it works. Most things are not worth the time it takes to stress about it because stress will not fix the problem, but it will create more problems in the long run. We might feel stressed about health, money, family, or other issue, but does that do anything positive?
Thank you for visiting my site today! I always appreciate your continued support and great thoughts. I sincerely hope your week is going well and you are continuing to stay safe. During the continued troubled times for the pandemic and other issues going on around the world, we need to stay positive, show compassion for others, and try the best we can to encourage our friends and families, especially when talking about the vaccine. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Hi alyssa! Nice thought! I deal with stress by journaling, listening to music, or reading!

Stress truly is a silent killer. It wreaks havoc both in our minds and our bodies. We tell ourselves that stress won’t change the situation and yet we do it anyway. Do you ever ask yourself why? I think some of us believe that we are in total control of what happens in our life. To a degree we are. But do you ever think there’s a higher being that has more control over our life than we do? Maybe that’s why things don’t always go the way we think they should. That higher being just might have more insight into what’s best for us than we do. But then that could mean we weren’t in control and would that alone freak you out? Make you worry, stress? Probably! On the other hand wouldn’t it be nice to know there was higher being that had our best interest at heart? That we weren’t alone on this journey of life. That no matter how bad things could get all we had to do is close our eyes and ask for help. We may not get an answer immediately, but knowing we were in good hands could bring us such comfort. The hands of one that would never leave us or forsake us. Think about it. Could such faith, trust, love bring you peace and comfort and in turn diminish or alleviate your stress? Isn’t that something worth trying? We’re not in this alone. All we have to do is make a choice. A choice to believe and trust in something other than ourselves. All My Love & Support Always, Mom!!
