Stress? Bah Humbug!

“I’m stressed!” It seems to be the universal answer for everything. Getting fat -I’m stressed! Not getting enough sleep -I’m stressed. Health issues, relationship issues, job issues, children issues,money issues, parent issues, you name it and we got an answer for it -I’m stressed. So we exercise and detoxify and yogatize and sleep apneatize or we eat and eat or smoke or drink or medicate or we just go 1000 miles an hour with the hope that we will do some good and be remembered for all we sacrificed before we burn out in a fiery crash.

Whoa! Is that it? Is that what it has all come to? Life limiting stress or destruction? No, no, no! A thousand times no! We need to take back our lives. They are a gift, a precious, wonderful, priceless gift. Your life and mine were meant to revolve around love and caring for ourselves and others. We have to understand that our focus is off. It’s like getting your eyes dilated at the eye doctor and bright lights are really bright so you wear dark glasses until it passes. What would happen if the effects passed but you kept the glasses on? The world would seem awfully dark. Everything would seem scary and stressful. You see, that’s what happened to all of us. Somewhere along the way we heard or saw that there were really good people, big bright shining lights but we weren’t as good as them so we put on the dark glasses of cynicism and doubt to make them seem less bright not knowing that it turned everything else in our world darker and that became our false view of reality.

We don’t have wild, out of control stress. We have opportunities to find solutions to seemingly impossible problems. History is full of it happening with incredible outcomes. We don’t have anxiety, we have excitement about what is going to happen next but instead of being expectant of something good, we expect only darkness. We don’t have relationship problems with others, we have relationship problems with ourselves and our Divine connections. We don’t have children that won’t listen, we have a mouth that speaks from what we have been taught and not from what we have felt. We don’t have money problems, we have an inability to believe that we can be worth more. We don’t have health issues, we have repair issues. We can do so much if we only change our glasses. No one ever regretted taking off their dark glasses and putting on the rose colored ones but many people think they are too stressed to try. Thank God you and I are not one of them!
