got stress?

Do you have stress in your life? If not, you're either oblivious or your physician prescribed you very strong psychotropic medication.

Needles to say, we're all under a tremendous amount of stress. We have responsibilities and task lists that don't end with deadlines of yesterday.

So I was thinking about this the other day and it occurred to me that there are at least two ways to handle it:

  1. Give in. Get upset. Sulk and brood over the fact that there is so much to do and so little time to do it. Go into a funk and die early.
  2. Accept it. Embrace it. Work hard. Play harder. Don't take yourself so seriously. Look at the big picture. Live longer.
The Truth
Stress never goes away. In fact, it actually follows the Hindu religious belief 'reincarnation' in that just when you think its gone, it returns in a slightly different form.
