Stress can eat away at us and cause pain and anger.
It can cause us to be depressed and make us believe we are spiraling downward.
But have we considered the “why” behind it all?
Are we juggling too much?
Are we prioritizing the wrong things?
Are we avoiding the obvious decision because it’s too painful?
Are we letting others’ voices tower over our own?
These questions can be important to think about when we start to feel the onset of negative emotions and feelings.
Oftentimes, we carry too much of a burden and it weighs us down.
We need to try and unload the unnecessary stuff and focus on the important.
Like an ice sculpture, it may start as a big block but the more it is whittled down it starts to form a beautiful shape.
When we become focused on what is important it can inform us on the decisions we should make.
That informs us where we should spend our energy.
Only then can we chisel away the excess to expose our masterpiece.
