There’s no such thing as stress…
If there were, it would be bleeding out of my eyes right now.
But I remember something that my old nemesis Wayne Dyer used to say:
There is no such thing as stress. There is only you responding to the things going on around you.
I thought about this today listening to someone talk about how our cells vibrate to an unhealthy energy when we are stressed. Good gawd. Look. I’ve been stressed. I’m stressed right now. For all I know, I will be unemployed in a week. Certain issues at work will very soon be worked out and I haven’t a clue yet as to what that will look like. Will the supervisor take the fall for the group’s issues? It wouldn’t be the first time.
But stress has nothing to do with energy or vibrations or past-lives or your mother hitting you with a ruler. It has something to do with life and luck. It has mostly to do with your decisions and your behaviors. You know how to resolve these situations? Decide now to make the right decision. Get help seeing clearly if you need to. Move. Move in any direction and then reassess. Then move again. Write down what good looks like for you then write out all the steps you need to get there.
So, quit vibrating. You can’t see clearly with all that shaking, anyway. Think about what’s solid and secure and true. And then stick to that script. Make a decision. Do something.
