Life has certainly been challenging for everyone, especially over the last few years. We’ve had to deal with the COVID pandemic, bushfires, the recent floods in Queensland and NSW as well as coping with news of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The media has also reported three heart attack realated deaths in a week of prominent Australians – Kimberley Kitching, (52) a senator in the Australian Parliament, Rod Marsh (73) and Shane Warne (52) both huge names in the world of cricket. A wake up call to all of us that life can be cut short.
I’ve had a couple of conversations with friends and we all agree that we feel guilty, because our lives are going well, yet others are experiencing devastation.
In this week’s Micro Monday’s episode I discuss the importance of overcoming our ‘guilt’ when life is going well whilst life is devastating for others. During the episode I share ways to
- Find the balance between feeling empathy for others and still recognise the good things that you are experiencing
- Resilience to cope when life gets overwhelming
- Take that moment every day to find good in our life to maintain good mental health and wellbeing
- Celebrate the good moments despite all that is happening around us
- How showing kindness and support to others can help you
Listen to my thoughts and I’d love to hear your comments.
How are you feeling at the moment?
Are you robbing yourself of personal joy because you feel guilty?
What are you doing today to make the most of this day?
