Overcoming Difficulties

It’s Not About The Situation, It’s About How You Handle It

Hello World, 

No one said life was going to be easy. Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t. Yet we all go through difficult and upsetting situations.

For years I was highly reactive to anything that happened in my life and my reactions usually made them more difficult. Yes we all hear and process things differently, yet what we don’t do is step back, pause, process and breathe before we react.

Every situation we deal with throughout our lives can be and should be handled with care. Getting angry never fixes anything and neither does stressing on it. When we step back we can look at the situation and deal with it accordingly. When we react we get stuck on stupid and rarely defuse anything.

I’ve learned that if we stop and process before we react, anger and frustration rarely happen. Yet most of us react automatically and usually the outcome isn’t good. We wind up angry or frustrated and instead of moving on we get stuck or start second guessing ourselves and wind up getting what I call the f### its. 

Automatically reacting to a difficult situation never has the outcome we’d like because most of the time our reaction makes it worse. I have learned that if I can control it then don’t stress about it and if I can’t control it stressing or reacting to it won’t change it so why bother.

It’s not easy to stop, drop and roll so to speak, yet when we can step back, pause and process, the outcome is almost always better and what’s best for all involved.

Take time to process all situations before you react because it doesn’t matter what the situation is… What matters is how you react to it! 

Have a beautiful day world!

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

  1. Hello! I’m getting a bit too old to stop drop and roll. It could hurt, and I might not get back up. What I have managed to get better at is taking a breathe. I realize that I can control my reactions a lot better because I now understand that what I may encounter has little if anything to do with me personally, especially when coming from outside myself. Rash emotions can crush the life out of you slowly but surely. Ask yourself the question: What is this? And move quickly on to what will soon be your highest and better self.
