Another Hard Lesson For Me From the Universe
This is the second time the universe is trying to teach me this lesson. I’m not going to lie, I thought I had it down. I mean this is what I teach other people so I should have it down pretty well, right? I mean, I feel pretty damn good most of the time.
Question: Am I so used to the way anxiety feels in my body that I don’t even realize I’m anxious?
The first time I learned this lesson was when I had a stroke caused by stress when I was 39. So I learned my lesson which was, It’s not just about what you eat and how much you exercise. It’s about taking care of your stress levels too. It was a hard lesson but I worked really hard at reducing my stress and anxiety, I tried everything and it worked. I felt so much better. I started coaching others on how I did this, what worked, and how I made it a habit.
I suppose I did not take into consideration the absolute chaos the world...
For this week's Monday Self-Care Challenge, I talked shortly about being authentically yourself very simply because it's easier. You don’t have to TRY to be a certain way you just ARE a certain way. Much easier, right?
There is obviously more to it than that but this is a good way to think about it.

Starting when I was younger because there was some stress in my household I became the people pleaser. I hated confrontation and my motto was, avoid confrontation at all costs. As I got older I mastered the art of people pleasing. This was not a good thing.
