Because truly I’m getting bored of you. I’d like try to spend some time with Serenity, or Sanity, or Relaxation, or maybe Peace.
I know I’m bad at ending relationships. I get attached even to things that are just wrong for me.
I make excuses. I have a hard time letting go.
And you, well you are relentless. You keep finding ways to get in my face.
Yesterday you played nasty. I had a simple appointment. Do I need the implant replaced or not? And somehow it turned into an insurance nightmare and a need to consult with a new plastic surgeon. The surgery will be. But at least it’s not urgent. Sheesh! I needed to fit in a consult with a NEW doctor? You know how much I LOVE new doctors right? AND EXTRA trips to the city. My complete favorite.
And as I tried to reach Meghan’s doctor to get things scheduled I hit so many roadblocks it was like you were just taunting me with your tongue out. I get it. Long weekend. Except it’s TOO long if you’re waiting on things like this. I cried. I admit it. You got to me.
But you know what Stress? You’re taking up too much energy. And once again my kid set me straight. She swam one heck of a practice tonight. She will swim her December meet. I owe it to HER to work around her passions. We even chuckled, knowing the reality of what she COULD be facing, and the super importance of her swimming, and singing, and acting. No matter if the doctor understands. God help me no matter if it delays things a few days. (Breathe in breathe out…) cause we have to prioritize.
Stress you don’t like focus. You like chaos. You like drama. You like mayhem. I doubt you’re gone for good. But we are so over you.
Excuse me while Peace, Serenity and I dig out the Christmas tree.
I will release you with my mind. I will release you with my energy. I will release you using ADAPTOGENS. I’m really not interested in you…

I liked it very much. Very good.
Thinking of you both. Always.
Right back at you!
