my spring break involved some challenges on family member’s health problems, and here I am, in my hometown, dealing with challenging realities and feelings.
My fears are not only with that, but with the kind of impact it can have into my life. Because, let’s face it, there is some percentage of selfishness in our worry for people close to us.
So, how can I choose a better feeling thought?
To begin with, this experience, helps me put things into perspective. Job insecurity, money or other similar questions are secondary to health.
Then, it’s like, how about feeling I have been struggling in a certain direction without getting into a place where I can say, I have accomplished something I can keep with me.
A place to rest. As if my successes were not stepping-stones.
But is this true?
Actually, I have learnt to rebound after pretty challenging situations.
Somehow, I found solutions.
I have become resilient.
Then, let’s face it, security was not my number 1 goal.
A meaningful experience is my goal.
And I feel gratitude towards myself and others, to have worked in this direction.
I feel grateful for my friends standing by me.
I feel grateful for the wonderful job I have been doing.
These are challenging times for everyone. We need to give it our best.
