National Chaos Never Dies Day is November 9...Do You Plan to be In the Middle of It?

 

Raise your hand if you know someone whose life always seems to be in a state of chaos. 

 

When I saw this day...and by the way, I have no idea what it’s all about...it just jogged a blog in my nog(gin)... several people I know chaospopped into my head. 

 

There are people in my life who always seem to be running around like a chicken with their head cut off. It seems as if their schedule and theirs alone is packed with appointments and activities that they have to attend to. 

 

When situations come up, they are the first to jump in and try to make things right even though it is not their issue to fix. 

 

Do you know of someone that thrives on chaos or might you be that person?

 

Things happen...I get it. But chaos doesn’t have to control you. 

 

What about all of those appointments and social events you’ve scheduled?  

A very good friend is excellent at keeping chaos out of her life as much as she can. For example, before any major trip or when she leaves town for the summer, she is careful about scheduling lunches and other appointments that will take away from her time and stress her out.

 

Most of us, on the other hand, would try to squeeze in every appointment we could, then complain about how much we have to do.

For those who thrive on chaos, chaos never dies...they won’t let it. 

 

If you’re interested in getting ahead of chaos and the stress it causes here are two excellent posts written recently…

Hi Kathy - you're right "stuff" does and can happen.  Chaos doesn't need to be a friend or be given an invitation.

Hi Kathy - always expect chaos but plan on dealing with it.  Those who don't are always spending their time putting out fires.

Kathy,

A fine way to highlight two excellent posts.  Neither one of us is a fan of chaos, and we do our best to avoid it.  A

I had to laugh about the first person I thought of that lives in chaos land and has for years. The joke is she's a psychologist!!  You'd think of anyone she'd have figured the game out better by now....but nope!  I guess people that live in chaos land prefer their estate of mind LOL.  Have a great weekend Kathy!

Barbara Todaro I'm with you. If a situation pops up, I am quick to do what I can about it or leave it to the person who needs to take care of it.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson I can handle stress but don't enjoy being around people who seem to want to create it. 

Nina Hollander you're right. Sometimes you can't avoid it but we can control it in our own lives.

Michael Jacobs I really like what you said...it doesn't have to be a friend or extended an invitation. 

Kat Palmiotti it's an interesting day.  Most of us here avoid it. 

Brian England chaos comes into everyone's life at times, but there are some who just walk hand in hand with it.

Hi Kathy,
I just don't do chaos. I'm known as the "No Drama Mama" in my family. Don't bring it here.  I know how to deal with problems and inconvenience but if you want to turn it into a circus or chaos, take your party somewhere else.

Well, I checked out the stars awhile ago and my suspicions were confirmed.  Mercury is retrograde, and it can create break downs in communication, technology and mechanical things.  I've had my share of chaos around some of that this morning.

Kathy I know people who I don't think ever had a day without some form of chaos, and it is all self inflicted from making bad decision after bad decision.

Kathy:

Sometimes life does get chaotic. But there seem to be some people who bring it on themselves because of poor or no planning, not managing time well, or other reasons. Some may thrive on it, or let it just become a habit. I try to avoid it when I can but there are those days no matter how wll you plan or how organized you are, chaos reigns!

Yes, I deal with the 'chaos-addicted' on a daily basis . . . some of them (AND I AM THE LAST TO WANT TO SAY THIS) need psych meds for a chemical imbalance; some it is environmental (not enough sunlight/Vit D/magnesium; too much EMFs and sitting when they should be moving their body)

Some do it to 'feel something' . . . okay if that's what you want to feel.

I can't go there as I enjoy my health!
