The Four R’s- Surviving turmoil

I’ve had a fucking rough time lately. I decided to turn that bullshit into something useful… and immerse myself in my art…. so…

Here’s a quick guide for dealing with internal turmoil with grace.  Also check out that solid and seductive nude.  Yessssssss, baby.  At least my exterior doesn’t reflect how gross my soul feels when people fuck with my chi.

Reflect inwards.

When everything is fucking up around you, and your strength is depleted, reflection is required. Ask your higher self what to do. He or She will always have the answer. He or she has no bullshit, no ego, and will give you a solid bitch slap when you need it. Accept it and welcome it. Do as it says. For me, the answer was “get in your fucking office and apply fingers to keys and do not stop until you feel less shitty.” Your answer may be different, but applying yourself to flexing your shit and working on those skills will most likely be a frequent answer.

Reach out.

Most of us have trusted VIP gangstas we can rely on. I don’t have many, and keeping your circle tight is imperative for maintaining a drama free life. Be part of a small but elite group of humans… the type who never let each other down. Tell them the truth. Tell them you’re struggling. 99.9% of the time they will reach back and issue a strong high five to remind you that you are worth helping.  Accept that help, in whatever forms it comes in that resonate with you.

Redefine your limitations.

Pull back from any and all unnecessary work, or interactions. I call this real life blocking. Raise your shields and do not allow any further darts to penetrate your soul. If you’re at the point of critical mass, and almost crying in public (FUCK THAT SHIT!) then you need to do some serious repairs. Drop any and all balls that do not need to remain airborne. Do it with kindness though, and give the people you’re pulling back from a brief but truthful explanation for your swift exit from said activities. Not one person has turned around and told me I’m a cunt for doing this. This only speaks of the quality of the people I surround myself with. Be careful not to isolate yourself for too long, but do take a breather to gather yourself and recenter yourself.  Even badasses need a brief time out here and there.

Remind yourself who you are.

Have a mantra…. or ten. Repeat them to yourself. Affirm yourself. If you’re like me, and spend a lot of time in quiet contemplation and solitude…….. You’ve gotta be able to speak to yourself in a way that raises your vibe. No negative self talk. No telling yourself you’re a shitty person because you’re not able to deal with level 1000 fuckery at all times and for all of eternity. Nobody can handle that bullshit. I repeat… fuck that shit. When shit gets hard for me, I say this.

BE THE PERSON YOU NEEDED TO LIFT YOU UP WHEN YOU FELL DOWN.

RISE LIKE THE FUCKING SUN.

MOVE WITH UNSTOPPABLE FORCE.

I HAVE THE STRENGTH TO ENDURE.

STUMBLE BUT NEVER FALL AGAIN.

HARNESS YOUR CHI.

THERE IS POWER IN PAIN.

LET BAD ENERGY BE FUEL FOR YOUR FIRE.

BE UNWAVERING.

FRIES BEFORE GUYS.

Haha… That last one though. I really do say that.

I hope you find these useful. I rely on the four R’s to keep myself afloat in difficult times, and they haven’t failed me in 3 years. Actually, I didn’t really have a name for the concept until just now, when I locked myself in my office and started smashing the keys with fury to calm the storm swirling around at my core.

I prefer to be the eye of the storm. I can restore myself to calm, and I know this because I literally just did that by sharing my message, and a killer nude.  What a combination.

Unsubscribe to drama today. Apply real life blocking strategies, and turn your back on bullshit as quickly as you can. There are more R’s I’d like to talk about, but I’ll save those for another post as I find them to be secondary tools for my survival. They are as follows:

Repair. Rest. Rebuild. Recreate.

And now, I get back to sipping my vodka and indulging in Netflix with no chill.

 

Amen.
