Good Stress

I AM STRESSED! The kind of stress that makes your hair turn grey sooner than it is supposed to. The kind of stress that makes you lose the much needed amount of sleep that is required on a daily basis. The kind of stress that has you drinking more coffee than the body is used to. Yes… that kind of stress! However, it’s a GOOD STRESS!

First off, my apologies for being M.I.A. for the last few weeks. I’ve always tried to write on my blog at least 2 times a week. In that time, I’ve changed jobs, went on a cruise, painted inside the house, moved furniture, redecorated… the word busy is an understatement. The next few weeks will be more moving of furniture for phase II of inside renovations. And I am ok that. Remember, this is GOOD STRESS.

I was a little apprehensive about changing things around in my husband’s house. The colors he was used to seeing would be changed. Moving the things out that were cluttering the inside to the garage or sent to the Thrift Store was a relief. Changing curtains to give a little bit of life to a gloomy room. It is amazing how colors can effect a room and/or mood. I am truly thankful that my husband is pleasantly pleased with the transformations. His approval means so much to me.

I tried to be mindful not to become too anxious with the modifications. I, for one, believe that [some] change is good. But I also wanted to make sure I didn’t upset my (step)son by rearranging (for instance) a picture that his (deceased) mother may have hung up. Things like that. However, he has been very receptive of the change.

I am still going to have busy weeks ahead doing other things. I have other ‘plans’ for my book. It’s just that priorities are taking precedence over what I want to do. In the meantime, I pray I won’t lose focus of my dreams. I’ll take one day at a time and enjoy this GOOD STRESS!

Until next time … be blessed!
