So true. Sometimes in the midst of hard times, a stressful moment, or a tumultuous day, it’s difficult to remember that the feelings overwhelming us are temporary. Take a breath and remind yourself of this and you can get through ANYTHING. I always remind myself that even on the most cloudy or rainy of days, the sun is shining above the clouds. You know this is true if you have ever taken off in a plane on a cloudy day because once the plane gets up to a certain level, the sun is shining again! A great reminder for all of us stressed out, overwhelmed New Yorkers!
So what gets me through of a funk? Duh! Putting on an awesome song and just dancing like a spaz. Works every time. I dare you to try it. I often say in my classes that “the burn is temporary, just like anything uncomfortable in life.” Push through, remember that a moment is just a moment–however bad it may be– and good times are right around the corner:)
