Just Let GO…

🤷

Let go of the things you can not control!

I saw a quote similar to this recently and it really spoke to me. Immense amounts of stress can be relieved when we let go of things we cannot change.

Hello My Friend,

It’s Nurse Mary again, hope everything is going well in your health journey!

As you are probably aware, there are so many crazy things that are going on in our world today. We can protect our family and live a simple, safe, lifestyle but beyond that, we need to expect that others are doing their part and let the rest go.

That was a big stress reliever for me. Have you felt stressed by things going on around you? Even the weather can stress us some times but is it really worth stressing about? We can’t really do anything about it except maybe leaving home with a raincoat that morning…

So my message to you today is this: If there is something you are worrying about, evaluate it. Ask yourself: can you change it? Can you do anything about it? If your answer is NO, then leave it to God and move on with your day.

I know this is short and sweet but I hope it was helpful in your day.

A friend of mine “Skeebo” replied to my “Just Let Go” email. She had some interesting thoughts so I wanted to share them with you:

‘⛄ Let It Go’ was the song and mantra for the movie ‘Frozen’ – and my granddaughter could sing every word of it!!! There’s something to be said for the feeling.

My children have taught me a lot about “Let it go”. For every decision, there are consequences – good, hopefully, but there are bad ones, too.

Sometimes, when you see someone, especially your child, making a bad decision you still have to let them do it. As a parent to say it’s difficult is an understatement! There’s a time to step in and a time to let them make their own choices and experience the consequences.

It’s easy to rejoice for a good decision – but heartbreaking to watch a bad decision unfold – wishing you were wrong about the outcome.

One thing is for sure: 
Don’t allow it (unnecessary stress) for yourself – ‘Let It Go’. Keep believing in yourself and do the hard work to care for yourself. 
At that point – Mary is right – be the encouraging person in other peoples’ lives. You never know what seed you plant which may take root in another person’s mind and heart 💝.

I appreciate Skeebo’s kind words and hope you have found encouragement from them as well.

Many of you have replied to me with your own personal stories and I appreciate you so much.

I look forward to hearing from you, Until next time – Be Well !

From Stuck to Success

The Secret Skills to Success are

  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Ecstasy

Some of us wake up drained

Some of us wake up re-charged. 

The hormones in the body that affect which way the body shows up are: 

Happy Brain Chemicals

Dopamine – Functions include: Pleasure, Fine Motor Skills and Preservation of our body. 

Oxytocin – Known as the maternal hormone, but also arises when we have physical contact with another human. 

Serotonin – A mood regulator related to happiness. Lowered levels are noted in people with depression. 

Endorphins – Reduces pain, boosts pleasure and overall gives us a feeling of wellbeing. 

Cortisol – This chemical controls your fight or flight and can leave you feeling fearful and drained if not managed. It also manages blood sugar, metabolism & inflammation. 

We need to learn how to trigger these different hormones because they charge up our batteries to enhance our creativity and critical thinking. 

Being able to do this sets us up to develop skills. 

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Sometimes we try to force skills training when we are really starved to meet Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs.
