Queen of Your Own Life

Spreading Calm | The Battle for You

by Cindy Ratzlaff

I’m willing myself to be well because this is a travel day for me. I’m meeting Kathy and another friend for a few days to begin work on our new book while we support a friend as she has some medical procedures. Woman are sure multi-taskers, aren’t we?

Airports can be stressful places. People are anxious. Lines are long. Weather causes delays and disappointments and not every person one meets is on his or her best behavior. I like to play a little game in my head while I’m traveling. I pretend I’m an ambassador for kindness. I go out of my way to smile at people, walk purposefully but carefully, thank everyone, look people in the eye and in general, ease stress rather than add to it. Now, I don’t do this because I’m a saint. I do this because when I do, I find that everyone I encounter mirrors my behavior.

My theory is that most people we encounter want the same things we want. They want a kind word, a smile, a gentle interaction. So today, roller bag in hand, I’ll be floating through two airports, smiling and willing the world around me to be kind to one another. I’ll let you know how it goes.

How do you ease the tensions and stresses you encounter in the world? Let’s share our ideas and see if we can find a way to decrease stress and increase joy, together.
