We are all facing the same thing right now. Covid-19 has come and brought disruption to our normal routines and way of living. Some are finding it hard to cope with staying put, while some are operating in fear of the virus itself, or the effects that this virus is currently having on their family, the economy, and their livelihood.
We have to remember that challenging times are only temporary, so I refuse to worry about them. I know that any negative circumstances in my life always pass soon enough. This doesn’t mean that they are any less challenging, it just means that I have to find a new perspective on how to deal with these challenges.
I wish I could say I have not been stressed during this time, but the truth is, I have. I have been fortunate to not have my employment affected and I try to not operate in fear to the point of becoming irrational. However, I am being mentally challenged and by the days end, I am completely exhausted. I love my family, but these circumstances certainly make me value peace and quiet, and the little time I get to spend relaxing or taking care of myself,
It is important that we don’t let things consume us. I have included a few affirmations to speak to yourself during these times. Don’t just repeat them, but believe them.
I am a patient person, and I can easily bide my time until the situation changes for the better. I am free of concern when challenging times happen in my life.
I can often speed up the time it takes to overcome an obstacle in my life. By taking effective actions, I can move my life in a positive direction and overcome an obstacle more quickly.
I enjoy finding solutions to the challenges in my life and putting them into action.
However, there are times when all I can do is wait for the challenges to pass. This is when hope and patience are so important.
I am full of hope.
I am overflowing with patience.
When all I can do is wait, I wait as joyfully as I can. I know that it is only a matter of time before the sun shines again. Good times are right around the corner.
Today, I accept the challenges in my life. I deal with those challenges that I can influence. When challenges are outside of my control, I do what I can to get through them until better days come again. I remind myself that challenging times are only temporary!
We will get through this!
