S & B's Stress Relief Part 2


I woke up at 4:30 am and tossed and turned.  Could not get back
to sleep.  Why?  My mind was racing.  




I started to get frantic about everything I need to do today.
Sometimes there is just too much going on, and sometimes (often) I am
just too tough on myself.  



So I made a cup of tea and sat down to start going though my emails to make
sure that I had not missed something important.  1500 messages in my inbox!

Suddenly it occurred to me ~ my mind is just like my inbox, cluttered with
messages ... some important, and many are not so important.



So  I cleared out the not so important messages ~ just dumped them in the trash.
I'm doing the same thing with those unimportant thoughts in my mind ...
just dumping them in the trash.

Ah ~ I feel better already!


I'm going to make myself another cup of tea and give Bentley a hug. Now let's
get on to the really important things, like blogging!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. And I think 80 messages are too many! It is important to filter nowadays.

  5. Blog away! That's how I've spent my day so far - the first I've had a good chance to spend time reading and commenting for a week! Work stresses - and vacation days caught in-between. Thinking tea about now, now that you mention it!

    Joy!
    Hugs to Bentley!
