Overwhelmed?

When I’m overwhelmed I go over and beyond to do something nice and meaningful for someone else. I thought it was funny when one of my mentors told me to try it. Like, why? I’m in a sucky mood and I just want to be alone and wallow in my mess until it passes. Not so. Doesn’t work. Seclusion and isolation lead to more depression and it’s entirely to hard to break out of it, so… I tried doing something nice for someone during a personal trial and you know what??? It turned my frown upside down!

I do turn inward and take time to myself at the onset of a personal trial so that I can ground myself and level set. I often find people more needy and annoying when I’m going through something so I practice deep breathing and a pause. The pause is my favorite because in that moment my brain recalibrates and spits out positivity and love. After all, love, kindness and smiles is who I am!

The next time you are in a slump or you feel a storm brewing, start doing or saying something nice and encouraging to someone else. Essentially give away what you need and watch how quickly it all comes back to you!
