22 Mar Vanquish Stress or Frustration
Sometimes everyday tasks can weigh heavily on your mind or cause you to feel overburdened. Whether you are facing a full agenda at home or work, you can take responsibility for your responses. Instead of giving in to stress or frustration, consider the many days in which your duties have felt like an exciting challenge… like an amped up video game if you will. After all, the quality of your experiences—good or bad—tends to depend heavily on your perspective. You can feel more positive about your life by making an effort to see the positive aspects of the tasks you face. You may discover that what formerly caused you frustration could become a source of happiness and fulfillment when viewed from a different perspective. Right in this very moment can be a wonderful time to reflect upon everything you have gained in your life because of your responsibilities.
Each of us has the freedom to choose the way we wish to feel and how we respond to life. You can regulate your emotional life by making a conscious decision to draw your happiness from within and look for the positive aspects of everything you experience. No person or event has the power to control your emotions or force you to hold on to negative thoughts. You can claim your emotions as your own and never again be subject to unpleasant feelings by taking ownership of your reactions. By choosing to focus on the positive aspects of your responsibilities, you are choosing to have the best kind of experiences.
Make it happen.
