I have had a stretch of tremendous blessings and relentless stressors. Like sun showers, full moons in broad daylight, hail in summer, and summer temperatures in November, some things just don't make sense to me.

I tend to worry. Sad but true. But I have learned that life happens whether I think I'm prepared for it or not, so I might as well understand a few things....
1. Breathe.
2. Relax.
3. Fix what I can, when I can.
4. Don't worry about what I can't fix.
5. Until, I am in a position where I do not have to remind myself to breathe, my answer to everything must be, "Probably NOT."
6. Cut myself some slack.
7. I make mistakes, too. Get over myself and keep moving forward.
8. Pace myself, I am not a machine (and even machines need downtime and maintenance).
9. A mistake is better than "no attempt."
10. An apology is a viable option.

BONUS: Pencil in FUN. And if I can not go somewhere and do something fun, make sure the fun happens wherever I am.
Sometimes a fix it or forget it mentality, is actually a food thing (bananas are a good option)....
