I realized taking a moment to count my blessings always helps me whenever I feel like my life is getting too out of control. Whenever you feel overwhelmed just close your eyes and think of all you are thankful for. Spend time everyday quieting your mind and opening up headspace. Practice truly being thankful for all you have. Reflect on who you are, where you are, what you're doing, and how lucky you are! Think about your situation. Take the time to check in with your emotions. Be honest with yourself about your feelings. Think about how the things you do affect you. Think about all the things you want from life and ask for things necessary to obtain them. Ask for strength, wisdom, or the ability to say the alphabet backwards... If you want something, and you work for it, it can be yours.
