ON THE BACK BURNER

August 5

Some times you read something and you have two thoughts. One, why didn't I say that and two, they are right. Going on to number two, the statement that I read goes something like this, "Worry should prepare you for a disaster. But nothing prepares you for the real thing.You don't need a dress rehearsal." Now for number one,why didn't I think of that. If I could have the sleepless nights back because I worried, I could have a few more hour credits to do something more fun .I read that stress ages you. I can take care of aging on my own. It happens naturally. I age every year.I don't need stress to remind me that I am aging. I like aging. I don't like the alternative to not aging. Is stress similar to worry. "I'm so stressed out " is more acceptable than "I am so worried". Maybe I can do something about the stress ( doubt it) but I should also be able to do something about the worry part. What to worry about; family,life,pursuit of happiness. What to stress about; family, life,stress,pursuit of happiness. I don't think that you can tell your brain to not worry. It's what it does. You can relieve some of the stress by saying "no " to a lot of things. Just sitting down and taking a breathe, letting someone else do it, go out to dinner instead of worrying what to cook, get a massage, go to lunch with friends, go to the beach ( we live on the Gulf, for Pete's sake) This is not multiple choice. You can choose all from this group. Now I am worried about why I even got on this subject. There is absolutely no stress in my life and I have nothing to worry about. Liar,liar, pants on fire.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a "worry switch" just to be able to turn it off --not on

Worry is praying for what you DON'T want!
