Dealing with Difficult Times - February 2020

By Sue Chambers, Williams Lake, BC

What do we do when we are faced with a crisis? How do we deal with the fear and anxiety that wreaks havoc in our minds? We all know what it is like to be anxious and have thoughts that are overwhelming, making it difficult to see ourselves getting through and being ok; but these experiences teach us things that turn our lives in a different direction.

The first thing we need to do is recognize the good each of us has in our lives. While I know it can be hard to believe that things will be ok again, it is extremely critical that we take control of our anxiety and our thinking. We need to counteract our fearful thoughts. Remember, this will pass. It may take some time, but it will definately pass. So, start your day by planting good thoughts in your mind. Ask, what do you have in your life to be grateful for? Believe in the power of miracles and welcome all good things into your life. Tell yourself that abundance is flowing to you in surprising ways every day and that you will be presented with opportunities to improve your life.

Next, realize that it is ok to ask for help. Do not suffer in silence. Sharing with others gives us a sense of connectedness. If you are out of work and need a job ask the people in your life to help you brainstorm ideas. Let your friends and family know. Many minds create new ideas. Call upon the support that is in your community. Realize that you are not alone. That in itself is comforting.

Now is a good time to call upon your faith and to pray for better times for yourself and others. It is during the toughest times that we have the greatest opportunity to strengthen our faith. Pray for intervention and the courage to take risks and reach out for help. Remove fear from your mind and remind yourself that you will get through this difficult time. Keep your mind and heart open for those near you who also need help. Sometimes the best way to pull through and create change is to focus on what others need.

Do what it takes to remove the fear and realize that no matter how bad we are told reality is, it is still up to us how we perceive it. Don't fall into the trap of talking about the bad. Stay positive about the future. The more people that focus on things getting better quickly, the quicker it will change. We have all seen how powerful it is for many minds to come together and give off a type of energy that creates positive changes.

Remember, talk, have fun and laugh. Chose a different perspective. Stay positive; and be with others who think the way you do. Look at the ordinary miracles out there. Have faith and we will all come out on the other side knowing what is important and that we can get through anything together!

Recipe
Jo's Award Winning Butter Tarts
Category: Desserts
Description: This is a slighly altered version of a traditional butter tart. The original recipe called for corn syrup, but agave is a healthier choice.

While agave (pronounced ah-GAH-vay) is best recognized as the plant from which tequila is made, it has also been used for thousands of years as an ingredient in food. The nectar made from the plant is known in Mexico as aguamiel, or "honey water."

The Aztecs prized the agave as a gift from the gods and used the liquid from its core to flavor foods and drinks. Now, due to increasing awareness of agave nectar's many beneficial properties, it is becoming the preferred sweetener of health conscious consumers, doctors, and natural foods cooks alike.
