I am melting the stress

I am melting the extra pounds of negative stress away by balancing my intake of duties, expectations, and pressures

My life is in balance. By prioritizing, I create my own pyramid of responsibilities. My priorities are my guidelines for how I spend my time, energy and money.

In order to stay balanced, I do not over indulge in any one area. I set limits for myself so that I can stay healthy. Balancing my responsibilities is my exercise. When I stay the course, I burn off the excess weight of busywork or distractions. My life feels more fulfilling when I replace busywork with meaningful tasks.

I remove anxiety from my diet and replace it with careful planning. I balance my duties by filling out my planner. If I see that I have too many tasks on one day, I stop adding responsibilities for that date.

Sometimes I have to say “no” to some things. Other times I simply have to say “not now.” If I tried to do it all and neglected to limit my activities, I would burn myself out and experience negative stress.

My expectations are fair. If others place unrealistic expectations on me, I work hard, but I replace them with realistic ones. I take on reasonable challenges. I am encouraged when I exceed my expectations. If I set my expectations too high and then I miss, I would be stressed and discouraged.

A moderate amount of stress is good for me, but when I feel myself getting buried under pressure, I know it’s time to re-evaluate my diet. I am careful not to crush myself under pressure in the name of challenging myself. There is a difference between taking on a challenge and simply taking on too much.

When I melt away negative stress I fit into my clothes of cheerfulness and peace of mind.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1.    How can I balance my schedule?
2.    What busywork can I eliminate from my life?
3.    Are my priorities reflected in the way I spend my time, energy and money?

I grow more patient with myself and others everyday

My tolerance for myself and others grow every day because I let go of unrealistic expectations.

I am accepting and lenient with myself and I continue to be more patient every day by simply living in the present and letting go of the impossible. My acceptance and leniency of others has improved in the same way by letting go of the expectations I hold for them.

When I create impossible expectations of myself or others, I am setting us all up for failure. Having intense expectations is my mind's attempt to control the uncontrollable. By letting go of the need to control I can let go of my expectations and simply be me.

I focus, instead, on experiencing what unfolds in my life from a fresh viewpoint. I am prepared for all life brings my way without setting limitations. Focusing on enjoying the journey allows me to be more patient and accepting and, therefore, more loving and understanding. In this way, I can expand my love for myself as well as my love for others.

Today I will focus on living in the moment. Life will unfold around me as it does every day, but today, I will enjoy each moment with a sense of wonder and peace.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Have I created unrealistic expectations for myself?
2. Have I created expectations for others?
3. How can I focus on living my life in the moment?
