“When life feels too big to handle, go outside. Everything looks smaller when you’re standing under the sky.” ~L.R. Knost
The easiest way to break through the anxiety cycle of overwhelm is to put everything back into perspective by spending a little time in nature. There’s nothing like the vastness of the sky above to help us find our footing again.

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won’t come in.” ~Alan Alda
How often do you take time to challenge your assumptions about the world? Do you even know what assumptions you are making on a regular basis?
Knowing what they are and challenging them regularly can open up whole new vistas to view.

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.” ~Sophia Bush

“Things falling apart is also a kind of healing.” ~Pema Chödrön
Sometimes, like with this hole in the Berlin Wall, things that fall apart are actually openings to free us from the constraints that we’ve build around ourselves. Although it may not feel like healing at first, time may well show how each falling apart was actually a form of healing that isn’t visible until we can see it in the distance of hindsight.
Where can you see glimpses of healing in the things that have fallen apart in your past?
