Healthy Stress Level

Yesterday I spoke of two days, which brought about very different results.

I've been asked to lead a roundtable discussion on music therapy in May. This is really the first speaking engagement I've needed to prepare for almost two years. I'm looking forward to it as it will be out of my comfort zone speaking to peers on a subject which I am a so called expect on. It is a healthy kind of stress. A goal with a definite outcome too.

The stressors that I worried about in the previous post were silly little situations that I really had little control over. When will the repairman come? Why does it take my 5 yr old so long to get ready? I'm laidback enough to realize this to, but for some reason, the instances bothered me enough on these days.

I'll continue to work on letting little things get the best of me.

Nimbly thumbed on my iPhone.

I love iphone posts. This is not.. but it's so handy.

I have the same kind of stress. It's kind of debilitating sometimes. I have to really get my whole head in a good place and think positively. Then everything just seems easier.

I don't know the answer, but I'm in a good place now.
