As a business owner and a mom I find 2020 very challenging. But difficulties give me an opportunity to work on myself and focus on what’s really important in life. During trying times I concentrate on maintaining a calm soul. This approach helps me to conquer the challenges that face me.
I avoid being reactive to difficult situations that catch me off guard. While it is easy to allow confrontation to anger me, I choose to take the higher road.
I spend a lot of time on nurturing my mind and spirit. I train myself to keep calm and live in the now.
When I encounter resistance, I take a deep breath and allow the brain chatter to pass before making any decisions. I ignore the stirrings of impatience and anger that pull at me.
I realize that giving in to negativity zaps my energy and makes the situation more complicated. My wisdom in handling trying times encourages me to act from a place of calm reasoning. When my soul is calm, I am able to think things through. With serenity, I can see the value in all my life experiences. Even obstacles become worthwhile and meaningful when seen in this light.
