Finding Inner Peace and Calmness

Things have been pretty hectic around here . . . okay down right crazy . . . and I have been dealing with a lot of stress lately . . . I was recently (just a few hours ago) emailed this message and I want to share it with everyone who is crazy enough to read my blogs . . . so here it is . . .

"I am passing this on to you because it definitely works. We could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too, can find inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed, 'The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you've started and never finished.' So, I looked around my house to see all the things I'd started and hadn't finished. And before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a bottle of Kahlua, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how freaking good I feel!"

This made me laugh . . . even though that person did not mention one unfinished knitting project . . . my husband was under the short lived illision that knitting relieves stress but he has since learn that in my case knitting makes me swear like a sailor and throw things (yarn-needles)!!!!

I hope this little message has helped relieved some of the stress anyone may be going through right now . . .

BTW . . . with rehersals, parties, families, work, board meetings, church meetings . . . I have not been knitting for the past week . . . hey maybe this is why I am stressed . . . maybe I can get some swearing (I mean knitting) time in this weekend . . . here's hope'n!!!!!!

It should be a CRIME to not finish a bottle of wine! I do think that knitting releaves stress - as does spinning. There is less swearing in spinning too, by the way!!
