Wow, that’s going to be stressfull trying to be good, relax and pretend the day was good. I hope I can handle it. Actually, you are right. Let it all go and think of something that makes you happy.

    Very inspiring…one way I’ve been able to handle that jack rabbit who suddenly realizes he’s a turtle in disquise, I say to myself ,okay there’s a reason he’s slowing me down perhaps it diverted an accident, a ticket or making me slow down and realize I’m not concentrating on my drving but my day ahead. At 3am in the morning when suddenly I have that eye popping experience that the mortgage is due, the house insurance is due and all this before I leave for vacation…I say to myself…you know what these issues will be waiting for you at 6am so stop thinking, sleep and prepare to stress about in three hours.
