I am Tired of Pressure - And The End of NABloPoMo January's Theme of Pressure

4 years ago

I write about pressure quite a bit.
I am under quite a bit of pressure.

And I am so tired of it.

When I signed up for Blogher.com's January NaBloPoMo, I hesitated when I saw the month's theme was pressure. I wondered how much more I couldwrite about pressure


I am coming in to this one with a new perspective though. (And good thing because February's theme IS perspective.) 

I am going in to February with a new perspective. One where I just know our luck is about to change. I feel good things are coming to us. After all, we have worked so hard, we have put tons of effort into the path we want our future to take. We are open to new things, new places, a new chapter, so to speak. (I am not sure what chapter we are on right now, but it would be one heck of a book, someday maybe.)

I know the pressures I have struggled with will ease. 

Perhaps new pressures will reveal themselves, but that doesn't worry me at all. Pressure is not always a bad thing. 

Pressure often makes beautiful things happen. It often leads us to success. 

It all depends on how we look at it. It depends on our perspective.

Have YOU changed your perspective, and then seen things turn around for you?
