There comes a time when you are face to face with your own spiritual, physical and emotional well being.
A time when pleasing people fades into the background and doing what you need to do to take proper care of yourself comes into focus.
I am feeling little tolerance for anything stressful right now. I'm losing concern for what happens around me as long as it just doesn't drive my stress level up any further than it already is.
I'm gaining the power to set boundaries and not really care who gets mad at me.
I'm so there.
Excuse me while I go take some deep breaths and then hug my dog Max. He is otherwise known as "Meds". He truly is my medication. He is the only medication I am currently on. And it's my goal for it to stay that way. Every time I hug him I feel my blood pressure go down. I'm not imagining this. Studies show when you pet your dog, your blood pressure goes down.
Now if I could just take Max everywhere with me 24/7, I'd be all set.
