This was written by Andi-Lynn as part of her reflection on enhancing stress awareness from our Self-Reg Foundations program.
What if stress was but a visitor,
A fleeting moment in life’s grand chore?
A chance to pause, to reflect, to explore,
And find the treasures it has in store.
What if stress was a gentle guide,
Leading us to the depths we often hide?
A messenger, whispering, “Look within,
Find the wisdom where chaos has been.”
What if stress was a canvas blank,
Inviting us to create and to thank?
For every challenge, a stroke of grace,
A chance to grow in life’s embrace.
What if stress was a catalyst for change,
A catalyst for growth, to rearrange?
To shed the old and embrace the new,
To let go of what no longer serves you.
So let us see stress through a different lens,
A trigger for growth, a means to transcend.
Embrace the sparks that ignite our soul,
And in the journey of self-reg, be whole.
