Good Morning!

This morning I spend an extra hour just sitting in my bed and thinking about the day ahead. I have decided that I have one goal today and only one. I am going to try and make my day as stress-free as possible. Hopefully, if all goes well that will prevent another blister or 100 more blisters from appearing. (They are caused by stress and make me more stressed, so things must change. So between here and the lot I am going to see just how much I can do to reduce stress and keep this day calm and yes, maybe even have a little fun.

To be clear, I could use your help. Lockdown and hiding in plain sight are getting old. Work stress and lack of work are driving me nuts. I am the only one who can do the work and still, cheerleaders are appreciated.

This morning one member here already sent me something that brought peace, a smile, and tears of joy. Thank you.

The picture is my great-niece and her name is Joy, as was my mother’s middle name. (However, I think she was named after a character in a movie.) She has Mom’s black hair and her very own smile. I don’t have any flowers to share, but they have flowers in the background. Joy made me smile.

I am off to a good start and today it’s going to be about “me” being less stressed. Thanks for allowing me this very selfish day!

  1. This early morning my dog and I went for a walk. Normally there are 100 other people out walking. Today none, but we saw a red fox.

    they do not often come out when people are out. My dog was ready to meet the fox. I was preferring to stay a bit away.

    but we saw a fox!!!!!!

Good Morning!

There is much to be done and I believe that it will be my saving grace today. I need a shift of some kind so today I experiment with a different schedule and some changing ideas. It’s a new tactic and a different life. Change can be good.

I have spent a lot of time responding to what happens rather than directing what is happening. Today I am going to focus on things that I can control. I am openly asking for your help and ideas. You can message me or leave them in the comments.

I would like to make a list of at least 25 things that I have control over in my daily life. (I would assume there are some generic ones that we could all share.)

  1. How deeply you breathe when you experience stress.
    How many times you admit you don’t know something—and then learn something new.
    How often you use your influence to help people instead of focusing on building your influence.
    When you ask for help.
    Which commitments you keep and cancel.
    How many risks you take.
    How creative/innovative you are in your thinking.
    How clear you are when you explain your thoughts.
    Whether you formulate a new plan or act on your existing one.
    How much information you get before you make a decision.
    How much information you share with people.

  2. This is a very interesting and thought-provoking topic! The thing you can truly control is your attitude towards yourself and the world around you. You can control your actions in many ways, but it’s important not to lose the balance in that and end up restricting yourself. I have seen that before in some of the people I know and it’s not helpful in the end.

    Some other things you can control :
    How many times you smile today;
    How you interpret situations;
    How many times you say “thank you”;
    How you express your feelings;
    How much time you think about the past;
    How much time you spend worrying;
    Whether or not you judge other people;
    Whether you try again after you fail the first time;
    How much you appreciate the things you have;
    How many risks you take;
    Your words.
