This week we continue the conversation of taking care of self. I recently did a you tube video about how to deal with frustration. I realize many women are frustrated because they have lost touch with their imaginations. They have stopped dreaming about something better for themselves and feel trapped in their right now. Leaving them living a mediocre life filled with frustration and disappointment.
To lose your imagination is to not understand your value. It leads to losing insight to the why of life. You begin to blame others for your inability to move beyond where you are. (I’ve recently become very surprised by the number of mature women who show signs of frustration via acts of jealousy).
When a woman feels she’s missing/missed something in life and/or has lost her voice, she will become frustrated and strike out. She will say and do hurtful things because she is hurting. Frustration shows up to try and make you feel like there is no way out or that all hope is gone. Neither of these may be true. But if you believe its true, it is.
To change your position of thought you must choose to see from another perspective.
Here are a few steps you can take:
1. Activate your imagination to change the way you are seeing. Seek clarity.
2. Write down your thoughts. What comes up in your thinking? Let it out!
3. Review and repeat what you have written to set a new course of living and being
These simple steps can shift you into a new place of thinking and being. It will also show you areas of your life where you need to ask for help. The important thing is to refocus and see that everything in life starts with you.
Frustration is an emotion in need of attention and acknowledgement. The moment you shift to activate a different thought process you can move to a better place of being.
