There is no way to completely remove stress from our lives. Thankfully, we can choose how we manage our stress. In a busy, chaotic and seemingly out-of-control time, one approach to serenity is through identifying what is personally controllable. Once we are able to identify the signal (concerns within our control or influence) from the noise (concerns we have no ability to control), we can focus our attention and action on how to affect positive change. It is especially critical when faced with multiple crises that we take responsibility for what we can personally control. For example, we can take charge of our commitment to Coast Guard Core Values, educate ourselves and our shipmates on sexual assault prevention, strengthen our moral character, and lead by example.
On 5 August from 1500-1600 EST, join Chaplain Hailey Moffatt from Sector Miami and Ms. Mirtha Rivera, Base Miami SARC, as they discuss being responsible, respecting others, safeguarding our community and considering the positive changes we can make for ourselves and our Service.
