I wrote a little while ago about how I tend to struggle with anxiety, especially during the dark, cold, wet winter. That has especially been true this past year. But spring has sprung…and it took long enough, we had snow in April this year (which is crazy). I digress.
My son was born on April 23rd. He’s a beautiful, adorable, healthy baby boy.
He’s a little less wrinkly now and much more alert, but you get the picture.
Anyway, so we’re rounding the corner, spring has sprung, and finances are looking much more manageable. We’re reaching the light at the end of the tunnel. One of my clients and friends Garret Kramer writes a lot about your thoughts affecting your state of mind, and how it’s often best to ignore them. I’ve found this useful, taking what he calls “The path of no resistance” when it comes to anxious thoughts.
At this moment, right now, I’m on top of the world.
But it won’t always be that way. Undulating between depression and exhilaration is no way to live. Instead, realizing that life is actually pretty good all the time, and there are moments that are challenging…remember in those moments that acting out of that depression/frustration/anxiety/fear is not the reality, it’s simply your perception of reality.
So, that’s what I’m trying to do all the time. Keep calm, and carry on.
Life is, in fact, good.
