"Never, never, never give in!"

Winston Churchill

Stress. Stress. Stress.

My foundation groans from the pressure.

The weight of what I've put on myself; What I've allowed others to put on me; And the busyness of life we all experience, and know far too well.

My system is failing. Overwhelmed, 'creak' Overcommitted, 'creak' 

I'm spiraling. Frustration and pain are trying to control me. 'creak'

What I'm I going to do? I -

Stop.

Breathe. - Slowly. - Well.

Be at peace. Enjoy the silence.

Believe in yourself, Trust in God (or whatever you personally believe).

Rely on friends and family for guidance. Ask for help.

Allow the water's of your mind to become still. Let the ripples - the turmoil - to fade away.

How do you expect to discover a solution to a problem if you let your mind run away from you?

Try to be okay with the good and the bad. Because, this too shall pass.

  • Control yourself - your reactions, your level-headedness
  • Visualize your end state - what would it look like if you succeeded? Solve your problem, and grow from the challenge.
  • Focus on Today. Not what happened yesterday, nor what might happen tomorrow. Today is what matters. This day. [💣]
  • Now ask yourself, 'what's the next step I need to take to make it happen'?
"Au milieu de l'hiver, j'apprenais enfin qu'il y avait en moi un été invincible."
(In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.)
