Stressing out

Thursday, August 09, 2012

I've been having a rough week.

My dog decided that inside was a better place to go to the bathroom yesterday, I have a baby shower that I'm helping host on Saturday (that I'm not even sure if I want to be around for), I have my car acting up, and my boyfriend still being a pain about getting his driver's license. Add in traffic, the long wait for reimbursement checks, and attempting to write for both websites and I've got quite a bit of stress.

Thank goodness it rained last night.

After a downpour, it was gorgeous. The earth actually smelled normal, as opposed to super-dry as the drought has driven its olfaction and the sky felt electric. Add in the fact that it was a good 30 degrees cooler and, well, meditating outside was a very nice experience.

Unfortunately, I still feel like I'm getting ill and I'm not sure if it's sickness or just out of control allergies. I've been hitting the vitamin C like a good girl, but I'm still having issues. Maybe I should meditate more tonight.

    I know I also have a lot of stress in my life and I've been really sick .... we have to learn to control it and not let the little things bring us down, take time for US and enjoy the good things in our lives no matter how small the good is, we have to concentrate on that!
    I hope things get better for you! emoticon

    I feel for you with your stress. You know that stress can and does kill so be careful. I have found my own fixes for this. Exercise is ALWAYS a cure for this but so is stopping your day long enough to take a big deep breath, step back and feel that breath come out of you. Do it a couple of times if you have to.

    Sorry bout you dog deciding to be bad. Maybe he knew you were stressed and it stressed him out. They do have a way of knowing when things are not well with their momma and poppas. Every time I get mad at the computer when it doesn't work the way I need it to, my gal is always there with the paw and wanting to get into my lap and she is not a lap dog. She knows something is wrong. So then I just take time to pay attention to her and love her and thank her for making me realize that I was off my game.

    Hope that helps.

    Having so much stress might be taking a toll on your body. Focus on your number one priorities and see which things can take a time out for the moment. I would definitely make sure to take a little bit more time for you since your body is telling you it needs a break. Hang in there:)
