That is the very question -- Is it possible to live stress free? --
I found myself asking myself as I sat in Costa Rica looking out at the
jungle, feeling for the first time in a long time, completely free of
And while in Costa Rica I have to say the answer was yes.
And i have to tell you stress-free felt really good!
So good that I found myself sitting there getting a little mad about how much stress I knew was waiting for me back home...
I didn't want to lose that feeling of freedom, inner peace, ease... I wanted to take it with me.
Maybe you can relate? After going on vacation, taking a long weekend, a
day off? Feeling the stress melt away, and not wanting to take it back
on but feeling almost powerless to do anything else.
What I realized in Costa Rica and I am going to share with you now in
this love letter, is that the only way that I was going to NOT pick up
all the stress when I got back home, was for me to get honest about all
the ways in which i was making it okay for stress to take over my life.
And instead of being a victim to the stress... be empowered to make a different choice when it showed up.
And instead of being surprised or mad when stress emerged... taking pre-emptive action so stress couldn't come creeping in.
The process and meditation I went through on the deck in that jungle was
transformative... it burned up a few stress creators on the spot... and
while stress is still knocking on my door, I can say that after a month
of being home, the stress gremlins have not taken back over control!
Although they keep trying!
Lots of it.
Spontaneous fun... unplanned... magical... the kind you used to have before there was so much 'work' to do!
