Quick Trauma Recovery Advice

Inforgram on surviving trauma

This was my most popular Pinterest post of the week. So repeating it here. We are all trauma victims in one way or another.

That said, the current push to view Politically Incorrect Words as the equal of bodily blows demeans trauma victims and weakens those who would do better to as my mother said: “Suck it up Buttercup.”

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.

LIVE WITH AWE AND WONDER

 

The Golden Ratio.

I don’t get the math but I do stand in wonder and awe of creativity. We humans may be less than a grain of sand on the shore or a drop of water in the ocean, but we are. Knowing that is the wonder of it all. 

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.

Ban Perfectionism: Good Enough is Good

Perfection is beyond the reach of we mortals.  Fortunately, for most things, good enough is good enough. Moreover. often,  bad is good enough, particularly when it teaches us something new or reinforces major lessons we too often forget. 

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.

BE WITH BEAUTY: STRENGTHEN YOUR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

 

 Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.

 Confucius

Learning to fully aware of the beauty of this world is one of the easiest Emotional Fitness Exercises. It is even easier if you make an effort to create beauty spots here and there. Favorite pictures scattered around your house.

I have a black thumb but can grow succulents. I enjoy their beauty several times a day. 

WARNING: Habituation is a human trait that means we get used to seeing things and don’t really notice them. It took me three days to finally wake up to the fact that my husband had shaved his mustache. That can happen to the beauty spots you create. Work at staying aware. You will enjoy more and grow stronger.

Remember what matters, be grateful for all you have been given, and practice kindness.
