Have you ever had one of those days where life just seems to be working against you? Perhaps your schedules are all thrown off. Work was just awful. Your house is a disaster. The kids are all cranky and nothing seems to be going right and everything around you seems to be crumbling down. The weight is getting super heavy on your shoulders and you feel completely disempowered.
Have you ever had one of those days? I know exactly how you feel.I want to give you three simple tips that you can use to stay in an empowered state even when you are in a completely stressed out mode.
Tip 1: Nothing Lasts Forever
The first tip is to remember it's temporary. Whether it is this current situation, this day, this moment, this hour etc., it will pass. When you are completely stressed out keep in mind you don't have to be a superhero mom. Being a superhero is overrated. Be a super mom. Be the best mom that you can be in those moments. Don't get sucked into the belief that you have to be a superhero mom and I have to solve everything for everybody and make everybody else perfect in their life while you are miserable. You are not required to do that. This is temporary. This shall pass. However, I do encourage you to ask for help in those moments. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Being vulnerable is actually a sign of strength.
Tip 2: Creating a New Awareness
The second tip involves becoming aware of your language. In moments of stress, it’s easy to lash out at yourself with your words. Be conscious of your words and listen to what you're saying to yourself. Be aware of those words because those words are potentially disempowering you without you even knowing it. It's like a balloon with a little small leak. It is just sucking the energy out of you. Two extremely important words that you use in your language are “I am” and whatever follows after. Those words will either disempower you or empower you. For example, stating I am moving through this situation or I am a valuable person in my life or I am succeeding or I am becoming the person that I was born to be are all examples of empowering thoughts and words. When we disempower ourselves, we use phrases such as I am such an idiot or I am so stupid or I am so dumb or I am always overwhelmed etc. Be aware. Be conscious of the words that you are using even if it doesn't feel authentic right now. Stay conscious and be aware of your words.
Tip 3: You've Got What It Takes to Tower Over It
Finally, ,the third tip is your strength will tower over your fears. In situations where you are feeling so stressed find that courage deep inside you. Find that belief deep inside you and know that your strength to get through any temporary situation. Your strength will absolutely tower over your fears. On the other side of fear is that courage. When you find courage, you find the person that you truly are.
