April is Stress Awareness Month


April  is a month when we celebrate Stress Awareness! I really thought about this long and hard when I realized it was a whole month dedicated to Stress Awareness. What an awesome thing it is for all of us, it will get us thinking! So many people have stress in their lives, too much of it!

Some is self-induced unfortunately, some is brought on by how hectic and busy life can get. Some of it is caused from taking on too much, some of us worry needlessly and that causes stress.Over our work, our home life, over just anything and everything it seems. It’s bad for our body and also very bad for our minds. But we all know that already, don’t we? Of course we do, but we still meander our way over to the worrying and stressing side just way too often. Trust me, I know this well because I do it myself. I usually do try to catch myself though, and think positive thoughts instead. It works, at least the majority of the time and it’s something I try so much to be in touch with.

I just know the high blood pressure, the headaches, the anxiety, the sleepless nights, and all the bad things that come from stress just aren’t good at all. I hope we can all start to think about it when we start getting stressed. Maybe say a little prayer and also concentrate on happy and good vibes instead. It’s worth a try, right? Why let stress win? That’s what this Stress Awareness Month is all about, in my humble opinion only and for what it’s worth. I say it’s time to stop that awful stress right in its tracks!

I discussed this one with Autumn and she was in agreement, Yay! That Twinnie really is much like me, we want to stay healthy and happy. We just both know we have to make a conscious effort and be aware. I’m sure all of you kind readers are with us…Let’s do be aware and say goodbye to stress! Stress Awareness Month is a good thing! I’m glad I discovered it and I hope you all will also give it some serious thought, too! 🙂

The Goal


I was left, and you were right

Our one last goal was just in sight

We tried and tried with all our might

working sometimes long into the night

We were tough and we were strong

we never veered off our path for very long

it was our dream, you know that means…

Our house in the mountains made of stone

The beauty was true and we built it alone

Just you and me

like it will always be

At one with nature, we are free

the love still grows

and we both know
