There’s nothing we can blame on the holidays. Life is in full swing. If you are like me in years past, though, you’d like to press START one more time. Not this year.

There are a few things I left behind in 2018. Every once in a while I find one of them knocking at the back door, begging to get in again.  It’s COLD out there. But I’m not letting those old things creep back in.

We’re not going to hit START, but I’m going to teach you how to hit RESET in your mind. It starts with going to a quiet place, like the one shown here. Whatever your quiet place looks like, take a minute in the middle of your stress and go there.

STOP
Stop what you’re doing right now and take a breath. PUT DOWN THE PHONE! Stop typing or texting or doing whatever frenetic activity presents itself and BREATHE.

 

NOTICE
Notice what is happening INSIDE you. Do you feel your pulse racing? Do you feel punched in the solar plexus? Are your palms sweaty or are your ears getting red?

 

ASK
Ask yourself what is causing the stress in side you right now. Are you reacting to what you suppose or imagine to be true? Are you assuming what something is thinking?

 

PIVOT
Turn right now and change the direction of your thoughts. You will attract what you project, so assume nothing and ACT ON WHAT YOU KNOW TO BE TRUE.

 

What do I know to be true?

 

I know that YOU are made for a purpose.
I know that NOBODY has the right to judge your dream.
I know that the PURPOSE planted in you right now is possible because if it were not possible, it would not be alive in you.

 

What are you going to do about it?

 

If you want to talk, I’m here. Schedule a time with me.
