I carry a lot of stress. I worry about things. A sorts of things.
- A behaving badly
- A getting sick
- Something (anything really) happening to A at all
- Our marriage
- My weight
- My job
- My family
- The green car
- A cursing in public (Her dad taught her "sucker" she modified it.)
- Dying before I am 90
- Our house burning down
- Our house not selling when the time comes
Those are just a few things off the top of my head that I have worried about in the last 24 hours. I am glad that J is easygoing. I need that in my life. I also need more massages. It was an amazing hour and a half where I was able to shut my mind off and let all those worries float away. They came crashing back down once I got in the car and realized it was out of gas.
I find that exercise also gives me a moments reprise from stress. I swim on Sunday and for that 30 minutes I can just enjoy the water. I can ignore the stresses during spin too, but that is because I am in so much pain and trying to just breathe!
Are you like me? Do you carry a year's worth of stress with you at all times? What do you do to find relief?
