 Stress:  It can reveal so much  about oneself, your true capacity, what tools you need in your toolbox, your limits, and how to clear those limits away.

One of the most valuable things learned from stress is this: When you come up against something that is too big for you to handle, you have two options: give up and let it steamroll you, or figure out how to become a bigger version of yourself and take it on. Repeatedly choosing the second mindset (not without significant periods of whining, complaining and begging for life to be different) is probably 90% of why you are who you are today.

A few other things about stress:

  • Self care (time off, massages, etc) may only exacerbate the situation and make you feel like you really don't deserve the insult life just heaped upon you. It's worth a try - but if you don't emerge from your day spa indulgence ready to seriously tackle what's at hand, then it's not doing you much good.

  • If you are overwhelmed, immediately deal with something small and get it completed. This primes the pump, so to speak, to take on a bigger task.

  • I'm not a huge proponent of rewarding oneself for doing what needs to be done - I find that the best reward lies in having gotten the said thing DONE! However, if you don't feel that way, choosing to reward yourself might be a good way to motivate your better self to act.

  • There's a huge difference between complaining and processing. They seem identical in the first few sentences, but shortly into the conversation, you'll notice if you (or someone else) is looking for help to come across a possible solution, or just wanting a sympathetic ear.  Try to avoid the latter both in yourself, and in others that come to you with a situation. Life is too short to waste time complaining about it.
