To get through life’s challenges we need to be responsible, not take ourselves too seriously and learn to lighten up.
Lightening up means changing our attitude to things so that we can react differently, becoming less serious and more detached from issues that can begin to weigh us down. Not being able to lighten up is the biggest challenge and drain on our emotions.
Once an issue is sorted, detach and let go. Be serious when you have to be. Stand back as if you’re looking at yourself and observe. Now make informed choices about what you see, how you choose to react and what you choose to hold on to.
And how we handle ourselves and deal with our emotions is also catalyst for us staying emotionally and physically well.
