Stress: The confusion created when one’s mind overrides the body’s basic desire to choke the living daylights out of some jerk who desperately deserves it….
I understand the paralyzed state. Been there a few times…this year. You know when there are so many things that NEED to be done you don’t do anything at all.
I am beyond that. I wake up every morning reminding myself that I can only do my best and that will have to be enough. I chase my tail for 15 hours.
The truth is that all the things I have been asked to do, committed to do, or am expected to do have nothing to do with what I LOVE to do, want to do and in the fiber of me, need to do to make this face smile and heart happy.
I have become irritable, sharp, sarcastic (more so then usual. Scary I know), and definitely a tad rude and insensitive.
There are others in this world who don’t deserve my verbal lashing, but lashing they get.
“Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down.” Natalie Goldberg
I like it, but it aint’ going to happen.
What will happen is that the voices in my head remind me of all the tragic events in people lives and that I should stop whining and be grateful that I have all that I have.
Please, someone choke the living daylights out of me. I desperately deserve it!
