Spark Coach said to identify 2 of my largest stressors today

1. I love my work but it is also a source of stress. We have goals to achieve and when we don't get them, this causes stress. Being the manager, I need to stay positive with a can do attitude. This helps because I don't allow myself to get bummed for the most part but the underlying stress is still there.

2. The other is worry about my daughters and their future. On one hand, I can't help but worry about them and the choices they are making. On the other hand, I can not control the choices they make and need to remind myself that they are becoming adults and will choose thier own path.

Motivational quotes
Spark People and blogging
Hot baths
Long walks
