Chaos vs. Spiraling

It was very interesting that the WPC was Chaos because Thursday I had a long talk with myself about how I thrive in chaos, but shut-down when things spiral out of control.  What does that mean (to me)?  Chaos for me is very controlled – it gives me my time in a situation where everyone else is freaking out/high emotions to be the calm in the storm.  To look at the situation and really be able to map out how to get through it.

Today became a bit more of a spiral for me.  This weekend my mom and my sister were visiting and for a lot of reasons that is a very high emotional point for me.  The we have had some work stressors.  We are prepping for a trip to Japan and just a myriad of things going on.  And then my Outlook shut down (I rely 90% on my Outlook to run my day) and I went from a controlled chaos to a spiral.  It was out of my control and I lost my grounding.

Learning how to deal with this is part of my spiritual journey.  How to breathe through the spiral and move forward vs. going down the spiral.

  1. Sorry to hear that things sort of spiralled out of control for you, last week, and hope you found your foot shortly after. I too thrive on chaos, when there are many possibilities and things to do floating in the air. But when things spiral out of control, that is when I feel suffocated. And when that happens, I like to retreat and be alone and try not to let the stresses get the better of me. Hope everything works out for you 🙂
