#MondayThoughts: Stressors

If you really want to escape the things that harass you, what you’re needing is not to be in a different place but to be a different person.

– Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Letters from a Stoic

Life is filled with stressors and they can be laid out like landmines. The question is not knowing if we will react but how we choose to react.

At the workplace, at home, out in the general public, at school, the stressors are all around. They can send us in a tailspin emotionally if triggered. We do our best to maintain our stability but as we know we are all human and as strong as we believe we are, we can be just as vulnerable.

We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.

– David Mamet

Find what helps you best cope with and overcome stress. Prayer, meditation, exercise, music, writing, reading, singing and the countless number of ways to handle stress. Most importantly, pause before you react (if possible) because that small delay might help you from derailing emotionally.

Oh, have a slice of pie, my treat.

*Stay inspired and keep rising

  1. Well put, Sylvester! The moment, when we feel that stress takes over, we need to find something that breaks its power. A pie, humming a song, thinking of something lovely to come (that is always my motivation to hang in), or whatever!
