Amor fati... Now here is something that has helped me a lot in the recent times. A slogan/belief/mindset/anchor you can look to when you are struggling with your current reality.
"Amor fati" translated means "Love your fate" but there's a lot of philosophical babble about what it really means.
Here's what it is for me: If something negative happens or you find yourself in a situation that you can change for the better because things are outside of your control then don't try to fight it and don't merely accept it, but embrace the struggle.
Start to appreciate (and in a more extreme sense: love) the hardships you have to endure anyway. We often start to complain and get angry about things outside of our control which is totally unnecessary and will make you miserable even more.
Here's a practical example where this has really helped me to not get lost in all the stress:
I'm a father of two kids and having kids is great. But in the recent times I have tried to work on a lot of my habits and routines, changing them and structuring my day. This is something that you can almost forget when you're at home with the kids half of the week (I'm working part time right now) 😂. For example: I will try to get up early in the morning to meditate, do some exercise and coding. But there are a lot of times where this won't work because the kids had a bad night or they wake up just when I start doing something. Now of course this is frustrating: You've planned to do something but a lot of times something gets in the way. But does it really help to get upset about this? I don't think so because in the end you can't control these kind of things, they happen and you have to deal with them. And what this means is: Don't label the things that happen as "bad". Say "Yes!" to it and it will change your whole perspective.
You will notice that this is easier said than done and takes a lot of practice because most of us have learned it exactly the other way and most people will complain about the smallest things.
If something overwhelms you just remember "Amor fati" and take it easy with a smile on your face. - 47 minutes ago
