Sometimes in the midst of a busy day, I feel an intense need for space, nature, calm… I lust for serenity. Today I have many things to do, too many to count almost, and all I can feel is anxiety. I have no need for anxiety. I am fully capable of everything I need to do today. I am willing to do everything on my list today. It is the waiting that is hard.

I really wish sometimes that I were a different sort of person. The kind of person who finds everything easy. Or the kind of person who doesn’t mind hard. But, I haven’t quite evolved to that point yet. I still want things to be easy. I still want things to be pleasant. I still want things to be fair.

I hope today goes well. But it will be OK if it isn’t because, well… I’m capable, I’m smart, and doggone it, People like me.

How do you cope when you have a stressful day?

  1. Love it! I didn’t know you were on here. I’m sure today will go well. 🙂 To answer your question: I get out of my head and into my body. I dance, walk, bake, sing at the top of my lungs. I just let it out and feel so much better.
