Feeling anxious, impatient, worried, or stuck? To find your way back into alignment say to yourself, ‘this moment couldn’t be any other way.’ Or, ‘in this moment, I couldn’t be anywhere else.’ Or, ‘I couldn’t feel any other way right now.’ View yourself like you’re watching a movie that’s already been written, cast, and shot (with a happy ending).

Okay, first, let me say that there is no perfect way to deal with stress. The way you deal is the way you deal and as long as you're not hurting anyone, more power to you!

I am a believer in the idea we all have some level of anxiety. We all deal with our issues differently but anxiousness, I believe, is universal. Although, how anxiety affects a person's life and emotions is unique. Understanding an individual’s reaction to anxiety is hard because it’s different and unpredictable. Because of that, for an individual, anxiety is even harder to explain. Some do an excellent job riding around the city with their woes. I, like a lot of folks I know, do a decent impersonation of someone who can handle life’s struggles. We call it, “fake it until you make it.” Sad part is, some of us fakers don’t make it. Those who deal with a heavier weight of anxiety have a much harder time faking it. I mean, I talk about the things which trouble me but it doesn’t stop the anxiety attacks. It doesn’t always stop my mind from wandering.
