We all know about the effects of stress. It damages relationships, it clogs up your mind, it destroys your health. It is important to learn how to minimize or if you can illuminate as much stress as you can. This can be challenging because new stress is always arising and even more the old stress keeps a good foothold in our mind.
Every animal has stress response, It is usually called the fight or flight reflex. When a deer, antelope, or gazelle all the sudden find that they are being chased by a large cat this triggers the fight or flight reflex. For the animal this may last about 15 minutes until they realize that the threat is no longer there they go back to grazing.
Unlike the deer, people can live in a stress state for hours, days, months, even years over one event that can keep coming back and every time we think on it our stressors create the adrenaline that floods body. The emotions rage and it takes over our mind, our bodies, and our whole day constantly repeating itself as often as we would choose to think about it
So, how do we let go of something that is really bothering us? If we let a stressful situation be a major part of our thoughts long enough it will start to turn itself into part of our personality. It molds how we react to situations and people when similar situations or words come up again.
I know previously in my life all someone had to do was mention my ex-husband or his name, which was Jim, they could be talking about somebody else but the old feelings of fear, the hatred, anger and negative self-talk would just start rising up again. The adrenaline would pump into my system and that would be the only thing I could think about over the next few hours or more.
In this mini-series we are going to talk about some ways to move past the stress. I am not going to tell you to forget it because our memories are always with us. but we are going to look at ways to react differently to think about life differently and to move towards our future instead of living in our past.

I look for joy everyday. After learning that a joyful life leads to dreams coming true I do not want to live any other way. Since I have seen this truly happen time and time again in my life I look for reasons to be happy. Here is an example of finding a spark.
I had to run to the grocery store during my lunch break today. As I was getting out of my car I heard some rather loud music. I didn’t really pay attention to what it was. My first though was those people who have very loud stereos and think that everyone would like to hear what they are listening to. That is annoyance and is old programming.
As I got closer to the store I thought it was coming from some outside speakers. It really was nice music. Instrumental recent pop songs. Actually quite pleasant and I thought that was really a nice thing for the store to do in these days of covid. I even looked for speakers but soon realized it was not the store. It was two guys in the parking lot. One was masterfully playing an electric violin and the other held a sign.
In this time of unheard of amounts of unemployment and struggle, food rationing and hardships, these guys were out bringing joy to the masses. I took this as they are there for my en-joyment. I had such a big smile on my face. I know they were inspired to be there. Maybe they were trying to think of a way to make money. Well they were obviously doing what they enjoy doing but it was still work. The guy playing had sweat dripping off of his nose and streaking his face, while his shirt was plastered to his back. Seeing his face you could see he was doing what he loved doing.
In the times of terrible hardship these people are working, out in the hot Texas sun. Finding innovative ways to make money to pay their rent and buy food and at the same time bringing joy to so many people. Everyone around was smiling. You can tell by their eyes shinning over their face masks.
I am really glad I was there at that time. This is what letting inspiration lead you can do . I didn’t even turn on the radio on the way home. I just basked in the good feeling of joy that radiated from me.
