Good Stress is possible

Stress can be bad for us if it’s to much stress, no doubt. The fight or flight response is good when we are running from a grizzly bear….. obviously right? However, I’m talking about the modern day “stress” that is different from the fight or flight response. When you feel perhaps challenged, and you feel you have what it takes to meet the challenge…..   go for it, you then will remove fear and have focus.  This is not easy for people who deal with constant fear and anxiety. What is the only reason people have stress? Usually because they care about that particular something that has meaning in there life. This stirs up stress. What truly matters and holds value to you can cause stress, but it doesn’t have to! Commit to something bigger than you and use that value and meaning and turn that stress into something positive. Instead of finding excuses to why your “stressed” get excited about the challenge. Translate the stressful things you are experiencing and use it for you not against you.

“The deepest fear we have, ‘the fear beneath all fears,’ is the fear of not measuring up, the fear of judgment. It’s this fear that creates stress and depression of everyday life” Tullian Tchividjian.

“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.” Hans Seyle

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
