Having plans changed and restrictions thrown at you left, right and center can be a catalyst for anxiety and let’s be honest, anger and sadness. BUT, you don’t have to stay feeling that way. It’s sometimes hard to shake off those negative emotions and that’s why I feel called to share the circle of influence with you. This simple yet powerful tool is a reminder to focus on what you can influence, and avoid focusing on what you can’t.
Examples of the outer circle: “When will…this all be over?” “What if…schools/businesses close?” “Will my…family/job be okay?” “Why can’t…we cure cancer?” These are questions and thought’s that can send your mind and body spiraling. The more you focus on things out of your control, the more of it you will see.
When you decide enough is enough and you choose to focus on what you can influence, that’s when you feel more empowered and relaxed, open to looking for the little things that you can celebrate and enjoy this Christmas.
The words you speak to yourself and others, your attitude towards things, along with your actions and behaviours, these will directly impact how you feel and no doubt your level of happiness and enjoyment over the Christmas period.
It’s going to be a different one for us all, there’s no denying that! We will each have a story about what we had hoped and planned for this Christmas, I had been hanging on to the hope that my extended family and friends will finally be able to meet my twin baby boys who were born the week we went into lock down back in March! But by replaying the “what if’s” and “if only’s”, we are only going to make ourselves feel down and miss the magic that is Christmas.
It’s okay to feel sad or angry, but don’t let that emotion be the foundation to your festive season.
Use your circle of influence and the power of gratitude to help you see the good in all you have in your life.
What I wish more than anything is that you have some time to rest, reflect and recharge as we soon welcome in the New Year (with open arms!) Festive love & light being sent your way.
