Chaos is a complete disorder and confusion; it mayhem, disorganization, Chaos, and disruption in midlife. I say Chaos has no place in the middle of life or sobriety.
2020 has been a whirlwind. From the pandemic to the murder of George Floyd, and racial injustice happening every time we turn around, we live in a world of disarray.
To control what we can in our lives and unplug from negative energy and behaviors and people who add madness to our life is a must right now.
As I decided to record an episode about removing drama and Chaos, I came off of a chaotic experience in my life. This experience added to the stress to 2020, now that it's over, I feel as though I can breathe better, think better, and create more freely.
There is still a pandemic going on, and racial injustice every time you turn around. You add in being quarantined, watching the news, and scrolling social media d we are like pressure cookers ready to explode. It's too much!
Let's remove the pressure cooker lid slowly and breathe in deeply through the nose and out through the mouth...ah, I feel better already. I hope you do too!
Chaos cannot exist in a sober lifestyle and women over 40. There is no time for drama and rushing around, now is the time to nurture yourself, set boundaries and say no to things, and people that do not bring you love and joy.
Yes, number four stings a bit. But, it's a wakeup call to us all to realize where we are adding drama and turmoil into our life.
Chaotic eating happens when you hit mindlessly. You have no idea what you are putting into your body because you are too busy and stressed to sit down for 20-minutes a week and plan out your meals.
Chaotic drinking happens when you let your day takeover instead of you taking over your day. You may wake up in the morning and say I'm not going to drink tonight, and by 5:30 pm you are guzzling wine because of stress and life.
Chaotic relationships happen when negative people in your life become unbearable, and you let them tap into every ounce of energy you have. You don't want to speak up, and you're a people please so you suck it up year after year.
Self-induced Chaos: Holding yourself back from living the life you dream of and do the things you want to do because ___________________.You resist optimism because you only know the negative, and it's not going to work. You think you are overwhelmed or don't have enough time, so you create worry and drama and stay stuck there.
Food, alcohol, friends, or your spouse are your armor that you hide behind because it's comfortable. I will put money on you walking away and realizing a month, a week, a year later that this was the thing that was causing you sleepless nights, stressful eating, drinking to numb out, and living a life of regret vs. taking a risk to live the life of your dreams.
Here are 20 ways to remove chaos from your life today:
This list looks easy, but it's not. It's not easy to change the direction of your life. It's not easy letting go of past behaviors and people. The relationship with alcohol and food and people are deeply rooted. It's hard to let go, but you can do it.
Do you want a peaceful and calm life as you age or a life where you don't even get the chance to realize how much drama and Chaos is around you because you never took a chance to change?
Midlife is the time to live peacefully and happily. Enjoy food and eating calmly, and don't feel like you want to escape your life at the end of the day. You deserve a drama-free environment full of love and light and positive peeps.
I'm with you.
