I came back from a great visit with my family and instantly felt stressed. I guess I thought that this little vacation would relax me to the point that I wouldn’t feel stress when I got back. But no such luck!!! I guess stress doesn’t take a vacation!!! Getting my stress under control is not an option for me, it is necessary. My mind is always thinking about what I need to do, what I haven’t done and what is keeping me from doing it. My life is not where I want it to be, but I have to make the commitment to take care of myself and to give myself a break! My life depends on it. If you need daily encouragement, (I do!!) check the inspirational quote from Jewel Diamond Taylor. She is one of my favorite motivational speakers.
“You can’t afford to let people or circumstances drive you crazy. Instead, be driven to stay in peace
instead of falling to pieces. Stay in your own lane of purpose, dreams and hope. Carry your own map and
allow the Lord to be your navigator.” ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor www.dontgiveup.net
