How I stay sane in an insane world.

chores,family,kids,stress,job,money,health

We have all been there, surrounded by chaos and confusion, just trying to make it through the day. From crying, needy kids to work, life pressures, it can be overwhelming. There just is not enough time in the day to handle everything. When we add to that the stuff we burden ourselves with internally, we can easily be part of the cause of stress in others. This cycle is not good and definitely no way to live. It can be a challenge to stay sane in an insane world.

I decided a long time ago to not take the stuff so seriously. We are all human and react to the world around us. When the stress bus comes my way, I let it go by to get the next willing rider. I can only do what I can do. I am not super woman, even though that often seems what is expected of me.stress bus, work stress, life stress

I think from a young age, we are not taught how to cope with stress. We are put in classrooms to sit still and be quiet. We are not given much of an outlet for the pains and frustrations that are part of being a person. No one ever tells us that getting angry and dealing with it are a normal part of life. Very often we channel it inward.  We go from youth to adulthood ill-equipped for the realities of living in the modern world.

Because we direct so much stuff inside, we create more craziness for ourselves and others. I try to recognize this before it gets out of hand around me. I work to find humor where I can. I say may piece where it is needed and address items before they go too far. If I can’t finish or handle something, I let others know. I am not afraid to ask for help. Many people know more than me and that is ok.

People will get my best effort but I never claim to be perfect. When I mess up, I’ll speak up because I do not want others to be blamed and I can learn from the mistakes.

I realize my flaws and do not spend any time living in the past. It is great to reminisce but I try to live in the now. We have all been hurt and carry around pains from the past. I cry when I need to cry. I remind myself that the stuff that has happened to me made me who I am today, and I like who I am.

I work to cherish the little things. I find little nuggets of time for the things I like. I’m open to new things when they come around, but am content with what I have. I have hopes for tomorrow but know that tomorrow will never come. It will always be NOW.
