So often I have found myself in a vicious cycle of negativity. It’s like I’m in the eye of a totally negative, physically draining, joy destroying tornado! Can you relate?
I call them "Tornados" or "Tornado Moments" because when you're in one you don't know which way is up! They can also come on suddenly, even after a beautiful sunny day. It can feel scary and unpredictable, and even though we all have gone through it we rarely share how to navigate it.
That's where I come in to save the day! (I'm not an expert but as the mom of a group of kiddos I can tell you this ain't my first rodeo.) I hope this advice will serve you well, especially in the weird times ahead.
During these "tornado moments" I find myself listening to negative internal thoughts and lies about my parenting, my business and leadership abilities, and in general doubting who I am. It’s a funky mess.
I have been working really hard to defeat that tornado. But, let’s be real. It’s way easier to stay in the funk than deal with the junk. It’s somehow more comfortable to stay there. Or so we think…
I’ve been challenged over the last few weeks to push myself to cut the crap. I recognized that if I don’t start doing this, I’m going to be in the same place week after week after week. People, it’s not pretty. So, I've decided to take action.
Viable action steps are vital to changing my situation (and yours too)!
Let’s get out of the funk with these steps:
All finished? Give yourself a pat on the back and lots of love and grace and get ready to rock the snot out of the new week.
And remember, leave your funk and junk or you’ll be sunk!
