The onset of aging is often so gradual that we are often surprised when a birthday comes along at 40 or 50 or 60 years old. There are many reactions to aging. It can be one of fear and or disappointment. Fear that time is running out or that we have not made our dreams a reality. Perhaps we have stayed in relationships that have been less than fulfilling and now it seems too late to start over in life.
How did your day go yesterday or today – joyful or stressful?
Whether at home or at work, we sometimes encounter moments of being overly busy with too much to do, too many interruptions, and/or not having enough time to accomplish everything we want to. Obviously we’re talking stress and frustration and wouldn’t we all like to avoid those moments, especially when we wake up the next morning and have to do another one of those days. Common sense says if we could just stop at stressful moments to try and relax to collect our thoughts it would help, but we certainly can’t always rely on being able to stop when unplanned bumps in the road appear.
