Coping needs tools. You need support from people who love you. You need a shelter, education and confidence that is built up from knowing there is some one who cares and looking out for you.
Some people do not have the requirements needed in our fast, techno wolrd to cope. They are still trying to make ends meet, figure out what tomorrow is all about and they see the clouds diffused with rain. Sunshone is energy, they do not always see the rays of light.
I watched some one I love answer to a question posed to him once. He was asked how are? what are you doing, these days? Sometimes Hello and how are you are enough for a person trying to find sunshine. He answered, I am just trying to cope with each day. ----------------For him coping was enough of a challenge. The day that he coped was a successful day.
Our world is filled with success stories of companies over a hundred years old. We used products that were part of our lives, and now we know they are tainted, and harmful. We are fed by food manufacturers who make profits regardless of what they create to feed us.The instant, fast foods are profit makers, not designed to give us health and energy to cope. We wear clothes that are created by people who cope on a dollar a day. We spend our hard or easy earned money in wild and foolish ways. What we need is to sober up, wake up and take a goiod look at the world around us. Bees, butterflies and animals and birds in Nature are in danger. Our kids are unsafe in beautiful neighborhoods. Our daily lives are threatened by terroists. So how do we cope? How do we find the magic ingredient called success?
I believe people who share, care and give of themselves, see the plight of others are using tools for success. Many kids are writing and reading because some one cared. Old folks sit in surprise as they look at grand children who are armed with a cell phone they cannot put down..
We are faced with digital banking, 3d printed foods, robots to clean the homes, and drones to deliver anything you desire. What a world.It is amzing and exciting, BUT WHAT ABOUT US?
Are we in touch with ourselves? Have drugs and foolish ways confused and blinded our reality?
So in order to cope you need to do a few things every day. Sleep adequaetly. That means turning off the phone, TV. lights and being in a dark room with eyes closed.
Eat food ,not junk . Food needs to be real, so chew it all. Drink water and skip sugar soda drinks, the promise of energy loaded shots. You need water, natural drinks, a good coffee and healthy teas. i love milk and the real milk, not re designed, i per cent, no fats , , added vitamins and all that jazz is stressful. Just drink real stuff.I select foods on the shelf that do not have an expiry date that will outlive me. When there is a special , buy five , three free, check the dates. If tomato juice is there until 2035, I do not want it. Meat , fish and eggs should be chosen well. Vegetables and fruits, nuts, raisins, brans, grains and legunes are real foods. Go fot it.
Remeber that there are experts for Medical care, teeth, eyes and health issues. Internet does have answers, but the visit to a good Doctor is a good way to cope with Health.
So measure your success with how you cope without hurting anyone. See what you can do in a day to make it a good day for another person. If you walk away and leave hurt, you are a loss..
Find the balance of work, play, qaulity time with loved ones, a walk with he dog, a moment to take your Mom in law for a cup of coffee, take your Dad to a ball game, visit the Dentist with your kid, try to be a gentle baby sitter when some one needs it at home. find the road that you travel seldom on and see the pebbles shine when you go that way. Be a person who copes by being a mensch. Be a success by coping and making flowers bloom,. Awaken the gift and ability of others to cope and feel the warmth of the sun.
As I write this , I feel a connection to many people I love and care abouit. I wish I could give you all the good things that would help you cope. Wake each day with a grateful heart. Be strong, have faith and believe in miracles They work. Love and light, Rona Kruger. .
