How are you doing? How are you breathing with the changing news? Are you having panic attacks? Holding your breath? Hyperventilating and having a hard time getting in control of your breathing? Keep it simple. Breathe.
Think of the last time you were stressed out. Someone around you probably said, “Calm down.” It didn’t work, did it? We rarely respond well when told to just stay calm. We know better. We’re angry, agitated or nervous for good reason.
You may have heard the phrases “every aspect of life” and “all aspects of life.” They are often used when something happens that is likely to impact someone’s life on every level. Then, someone might say, “It is going to impact every aspect of my/your life.” But what are the different aspects of life?
Positive affirmations are positive statements that describe in a few words a particular goal that you want to achieve, and state that the goal is already a reality or in the process of becoming real.
The problem with silver linings is not that we’re seeking them, but that we may be finding them too early. I hope whatever upside we are sensing in both our personal lives and on the global scale are real and enduring.
