WHEN LIFE IS LIFING...


When life is lifin, it’s much like a baseball game. Just when you think you’ve mastered the art of adulting, life throws you a curveball. These curveballs can come as minor challenges like a broken heel on the way to work, to missing your vacation flight, to a major event such as a job loss or a health crisis. Heaven forbid these curveballs come at you rapid fire… Geez!

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when life seems to pitch a series of curveballs. However, with the right strategies, you can effectively navigate these lifing challenges and emerge even stronger. Check out these lifing survival techniques.

~Flexibility. Imagine you’re a yoga expert, but instead of bending your body, you’re bending plans, expectations, and sometimes, reality. When life decides to get wobbly, learn to wobble along with it—just hopefully not in public.

~ Problem-solving. When faced with a curveball, switch your mindset from "Why is this happening?" to "What’s the cheat code?" Think of each lifing challenge as a puzzle in an escape room. You might not find the key right away, but hey, at least you’re not locked in a real dungeon (I hope).

~Build your support system. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Sometimes, it takes one to handle an adult too. Gather friends, family, or anyone who can pass you energy like in a tag team wrestling match. Plus, it’s always nice to have someone else who can confirm that yes, you’re not going crazy.

~Prioritize self-care. In the whirlwind of life’s chaos, remember it’s okay to take care of yourself first. Whether it’s binge-watching your favorite series (I love to watch S.W.A.T & The Rookie). Take a long drive, turn on your favorite playlist, and sing loud and off-key. Master the art of doing absolutely nothing (now that’s a skill). Whatever you do, do it just for YOU!

~Maintain a sense of humor. I can’t emphasize this enough…LAUGH! Finding humor in the bizarre, the frustrating, and even the mundane, helps lighten the mood. Remember, if you can laugh at it, you can face it. Just try not to scare anyone with sudden bursts of laughter in otherwise serious situations.

~Conclusion. Life’s curveballs don't have to knock you out of the park. With a mix of flexibility problem-solving, support, self-care, and a good dose of humor, you can catch them—or at least dodge some of the wild pitches. Remember, it’s not just about getting through the game, it’s about enjoying the play-by-play, even if you occasionally have to ask, "Wait, what’s the score again?"
