What if there was a simple way to manage your emotional response to challenges, people and situations? Do you trust the way your life unfolds?
One thing is for sure, we have complete control over our thoughts, emotions and point of attraction
Let me tell you a story that illustrates how it all started for me. For over 10 years I have been personally involved in caring for my husband who has a hip disability. In the early stages, I didn’t realize that I was taking on the caring role and the additional responsibility.
It was until I began to notice that our lives as a couple were starting to change, from being an active couple, enjoying travelling and having an active social life all of that was gradually changing.
His condition kept getting worse and his doctor scheduled an urgent total hip replacement operation. Caring for my husband has been a positive and rewarding experience but it has also had an impact on many aspects of my life. The stress, the inability to have a break, lack of a social life and the difficulty in finding adequate support are a few aspects that come with this role.
Eventually, all relationships will demand some sort of compromise but it is possible to compromise a bit too much without noticing that we are putting aside our own life, career and interests.
I am not the only person who has gone through this and it has given the inspiration to start a new blog to share with you helpful insights like the following 5 simple but powerful techniques to change our mindset to one of growth.
