Do you feel stressed? Are you worried? Do you have fears?
If your answer is ‘yes’ to any of these questions, I suggest you not to stress so much.
After all, what will you remember at the end of your life? That you lived in fears, worries or stress? Was it really worth it?
Try to appreciate what you have now. Fears an worries are just thoughts, and thoughts can be changed anytime. If you have a lot of negative thoughts, try using positive affirmations to change your thinking habits. Here is my earlier blog post on how to use affirmations: https://noemifairy.wordpress.com/2012/07/17/how-to-use-affirmations/.
What would you like to remember when you are old? The fears and stress you were struggling with, or the happy memories of life with good friends and family?
Our busy 21st century life can easily fill anyone with self-restricting fears and worries; and also, wanting to achieve too much can make us chase things and feel stressed. There is a huge pressure that comes from the media to want this and that, to buy that product to make you feel good about yourself, not to speak about news programmes that deal only with crime, tragedies, disasters, etc. Don’t watch too much television, or if you do, at least watch only quality programmes.
There is an endless list of things that can cause mental disorders related to fear and worries. Many people are afraid or fear to live the life they desire. Depression is a disorder of the western civilization. All these symptoms can be related somehow to the lack of love and caring in families and relationships. People’s attention is not on their loved ones, but on chasing material things, because that is what they see in the media.
Is it really what Life is about? I don’t think so.
I am not saying material wealth is bad. It is good, as long as you are happy with where you are and what you have. As long as you are happy with your life, your relationships and looking forward to create more good.
Everyone should follow their heart’s desire without chasing unnecessary things.
People should be aware of who they are, what their path is, who they want to become and what they want to leave behind as a legacy.
We should all get rid of unnecessary fears and worries. Instead, we could trust the Universe/God that everything will work out fine for us, we only need to decide what we want, take the first step, then the next one, and the Universe/God will support us all along.
“Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
