It Couldn’t Be Done

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That ‘maybe it couldn’t,’ but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: ‘Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it; ‘
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure,
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing
That ‘cannot be done,’ and you’ll do it.
Edgar Albert Guest

SOMEBODY said it couldn’t be done.  Now is that somebody YOU?

Dealing With Your Button Pusher

A button-pusher is anyone or any situation that makes you feel consistently provoked to the point where you are at serious risk of losing control and your sense of composure. This tremendous negative impact on your emotions, is not only due to the provocation whatever that may be. It also has to do with the strong likelihood that your button pusher is someone &/or a scenario from which you can’t easily disengage or avoid.  The seeming “No Escaping This!” clause is what ‘ups’ the pressure in you, making you think of doing and saying things Read the Rest…

How to Cope When Feeling Stuck & Overwhelmed

When we feel overwhelmed it is frequently because we are taking in everything all at once i.e. the problem; the cause; the players; the details of what has happened; the impact it has had or will have; and oh yes “What will people say…?” As most of us have experienced, there are just some things that are too huge to wrap our arms around at one go. Therefore we have to learn how to step back, calm down, and take another and more measured look at the problem. This is absolutely essential  if we  are to get past it and restore normalcy to our lives. In this video I share a strategy of how to use questions to break the spiral of overwhelm and regain perspective on how to take next steps to get resolution. Specifically I focus on the questions of “How vs Why?”

Hope you find this helpful!

So How Will You Cope?

Be Strong and Courageous - Joshua 1-9

 

You know what? I found that last year 2014, I cried more than normal. I am not generally a crier. When I do, it doesn’t even last long, which I find frustrating because there is a time and place for a good cry.  For me it is a connecter and a cleanser. It connects me with the reality of who I am. Yes, I get affected. Yes, I get impacted. Yes, I hurt and feel broken at times. It washes my system of the pent up, burgeoning, and negative emotions and restores me to safety emotionally. I found that during my vacation leave in December, I would cry more easily. But “Why all the tears?” you may wonder.  They were due to being bombarded with loads of awful news, and in particular, the suffering it brings on people, especially vulnerable people.
