Write Your Track Record
If you find yourself in a experiencing a challenging situation, stop for a breath or four. Slow down and become observant.
When caught up in a tense or negative situation, diffuse the energy with a hearty laugh. In the middle of the chaos, just start laughing. It will energize the brain, provide relief to you and others near you.
If frustrated, count your Gratitudes.
Accentuate the Positive. Think of all of the good times you have enjoyed. Let the sadness offer a different perspective to write about.
Avoid Judgment. Your thoughts plus your choices affect your life. If you have overreacted, try not to place blame elsewhere.
Keep a strong awareness about how you feel in situations. Allow yourself to control how you react through self-realization. Stop and walk outside yourself for a view.
Choose what you want for an outcome, not what happened to you.
When confronted with what does not work, look at what works. Bolster self-esteem by remembering how far you have come to get to the situation.
Check your track record and write about it. You've sailed through adversity before. Find your buoyancy!
