When stress is building, it may be time for you to make some changes in the way you address the challenges you are facing – be they the financial chaos around you or the needs of your family-in-flux.
When you feel perplexed, it’s fine to get input from others yet rely on your own instincts. You may not realize your hidden internal strength, so trust yourself as you look inside for answers. Emotional discomfort can be a welcome opportunity – it serves as an invitation to grow and leads to greater self-understanding.
Bring order into your life by prioritizing and organizing – start keeping records by making lists and folders or using a calendar or blackberry. Enjoy greater peace of mind as you gain power over your finances and pay off your debts. Remember that your time is valuable. So set limits by saying ‘no’ to others and ‘yes’ to yourself.
