Be The Certain
I am hearing the word UNCERTAIN everywhere I turn.
I have used it myself.
Think about how you feel with you say, “Everything is so uncertain right now.”
Does it open you up or shut you down?
Does it inspire you or close you off?
Really pay attention.
It seems like the right thing to say right now. It seems true. But you don’t have to believe it.
Why wouldn’t you want to believe that times are UNCERTAIN?
I’m just going to take a stab at it. When you think that times are uncertain, you probably start to feel fearful or anxious. When you are anxious and fearful you can’t think strait. You get easily overwhelmed. We don’t parent how we would like to. It’s hard to connect with your spouse. Even small things seem big.
Yes their are a lot of things going on in the world. But you get to decide how that effects you.
Please don’t hear me say you should choose to feel happy right now. I actually think it has been really important for all of us to feel all the things. I want my clients to feel the anxiousness. I want them to feel the fear. As much as we don’t like how it feels, it means we are actually feeling it.
I have learned new things about myself. I didn’t know that I experience pressure between my ears when I feel anxiety. I do. And I can handle pressure between my ears. What about you? Have you noticed anything about fear or anxiety? Where do you feel it?
Noticing how you feel in your body right now is very important to actually feeling all the feelings. If your not feeling them, then your trying to push them away and they will just keep coming back stronger and stronger.
Yes things may seem uncertain but YOU are the CERTAINTY.
And when you can believe that you are certain, you will find ways to be CERTAIN.
You can be certain in who you are.
You can be certain in how you react in trying times.
You can be certain that you offer yourself some grace when you don’t behave how you usually behave.
You can be certain that your children are going to be just fine. They were made for this.
You can be certain that you are going to be just fine. You were made for this.
You can be certain that our Heavenly Parents are in the details and things are always working to benefit us in some way.
You can be certain that you might cry in frustration.
You can be certain that you might ache with fear.
You can be certain that you love those around you with all your heart.
You can be certain that you will get upset with your children and short tempered with your husband and thats ok.
You can be certain that your kids are going to complain and you don’t have to react in the same way. You can be calm.
You can be certain that your house may look like a constant mess.
You can be certain that you pray.
You can be certain that you’ll find time to progress, spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.
You are it. You are the certainty right now.
Embrace it. Hold on to it. Share it.
