Top 5 Friday Fun

Good morning all!  I am so looking forward to the weekend ahead with my family.  We have been so unsettled while we wait to move into a house and are lucky to be staying at a friend’s house while they are out of town.  We are looking forward to a very slow paced and relaxing weekend filled with time in the pool, walks with the pups, and playtime.  I am also excited to see what Meghan Markle will be wearing!  Anyone planning on watching the Royal Wedding tomorrow morning??   Keep on reading!

Life can get hectic some times. Whether its a job, family, friends, and/or relationships, we are all jugging a lot of tasks. Sometimes I can feel my anxiety levels rising and I realize that I need to take a step back and asses the situation. There are a few things that I have learned over time that has helped to ease my anxiety and I thought I would share them with you. First, I want to reiterate that anxiety is not necessarily a bad thing when it is steered in a positive light. It helps in times of preparation (EX: Presentation).  It can even make me do the best that I can as I have high personal standards of myself, thanks to that bit of worrying. Anxiety used in the right ways is a great motivator! Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like your anxiety isn’t justified. We all feel anxious at some point in life and some of us are more in tuned to our body’s reactions to stress more then others.

Free of the guilt from not saying yes to every obligation, worrying that my kids aren’t eating enough vegetables, or that the news is going to play another sad story. Free from vanity and worrying about what other people think of me and asking myself: Do I measure up?  Free from envying others and materialized possessions. Keep on Reading!
