I dreamed last night that I was suppose to be in two places and I went to neither.

Coming up I have stressful decisions and it is weighing on me.

I need to remind myself it will be ok but what else works for you?

This is out if my control but staying strong is key. If a dream freaked me out I am stressed how things will go.

Thanks I thought I was farther along on being strong.

For me, it helps to exercise when I'm stressed. I'd say it helps to eat right too, but honestly I usually fall into terrible patterns there - burgers, ice cream, peanut butter on a spoon. But the exercising gives me space away from thinking.

It also helps to plan, plan, plan. I make plans for every possible scenario and outcome. I think it's about feeling in control, like that's possible in this life.

Also: drop unnecessary things/activities/commitments/worries to give yourself more breathing room.

The other big thing... Time. Our favorite four letter word!

Regardless of the other stuff though - I don't think getting stressed means you're not strong. You can be stressed and still handle situations perfectly well.

Thank you Amazonia! I really needed this tonight!

I know my center is within me and I will focus on what lies ahead.

Now I just have to say that 2 million times to believe it

Really nervous and thank you! It means a lot!
