Burnt Out

Of work that I can't seem to grasp motivation to accomplish the task...

Of In-laws where estranged attitude I have only come to witness so far...

Of my confidence that is going straight to trash...

Of love that is tired of growing ...

Of Selfishness that lurks inside and outside my being ...

Of Everything that seems new to me and I don't know how to deal with ...

Life is full of sh*t, after all, I'm married to it.

Jesus Doesn't Want me for a SunBeam on April Fool's

Jesus don’t want me for a sunbeam. ‘Cause sunbeams are not made like me.

I could have been a nun if only I gained the nod 8 years ago.. True, it was a weak decision that was easily overflowed by other desires that came too strong to ignore.

Never Say Never

The Farmer's Donkey
Author Unknown

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out a way to get him out. Finally he decided it was probably impossible and the animal was old and the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn't worth it to try and retrieve the donkey. So the farmer asked his neighbors to come over and help him cover up the well. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel dirt into the well.

At first, when the donkey realized what was happening he cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down and let out some happy brays. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well to see what was happening and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was shaking it off and taking a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he continued to shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, to everyone's amazement, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Every adversity can be turned into a stepping stone. The way to get out of the deepest well is by never giving up but by shaking yourself off and taking a step up.

What happens to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it.

Because I Dont Have Any Reason To Point My Fingers At

The Psychological Symptoms of Stress
Ezine article: Brett Thomas

Stress is a bodily reaction to external stimuli that have negative effects on our bodies. The symptoms of stress are simply the ways in which our bodies respond to the stress present in our environments. Some causes of stress are easily avoided while it is nearly impossible for us to do anything about others. The symptoms of stress can manifest both physically and psychologically, although the psychological symptoms are generally considered more serious and can be potentially dangerous if not properly treated.

Telltale Indicators Of Stress

The state of our mental health also has effects on our physical well-being so it is imperative that we deal with any psychological symptoms of stress that we may experience. The response of the mind to stress is on a level different from that of the body, and the mind often shuts down other mental faculties whenever it encounters stress in order to focus more on stress-related problems.

The inability to focus or concentrate on work and a quick temper are both among the more prominent of all symptoms of stress. Each person has his or her own unique method of coping with stress, although the end result of a person being overly stressed is invariably a break down. Other psychological or mental symptoms of stress are usually not obvious and can be very difficult to detect. Often, a break down is the first indication that a person is actually suffering from stress. An inability to concentrate and the tendency to become quickly frustrated over trivial matters are also among the psychological symptoms of stress.

Physical symptoms of stress are generally a lot more obvious than mental symptoms, and many individuals who suffer from psychological symptoms of stress are very good at hiding the fact that they are stressed.

Often, individuals who experience great amounts of stress in their workplace will also bring the effects of that stress home. Various small inconveniences at home could also contribute to their growing frustration, and they will eventually become extremely stressed and anxious. Their tempers are thin and a break down may occur at any time. Most companies will recommend that a stressed employee consult a psychologist so that he or she can learn to better cope with his or her stress.

For most people, stress is an inescapable part of everyday life. True as that may be; excessively high levels of stress can be extremely damaging. It is very important that you know how to identify possible symptoms of stress in yourself and in others. Being able to identify stress is the very first step in the long road to relieving the symptoms of stress in the workplace and at home, thus making for a much more relaxed and enjoyable existence.

Reduce stress. Live and feel better.
