Deep Breath.

I'm convinced that our bodies were not made to endure half the emotional and physical stress we put them through. With that in mind when I let myself get too worn down I lose my mind. No really I do. Tonight I was worn out from a 6am workout, a weird dream that was keeping my mind in overdrive, and had a crazy week-of-event day at work. I'm driving to church hoping to muster up enough energy to really bring it for my fellow financial peacers...when I think to myself, 'I'm so worn out I'm going to do something totally ridiculous today'.

Guess what it was?

Oh fine, I'll just tell you. I locked my key in my car. Sitting right on my seat. I walked 2 steps away from the car and instantly knew what I'd done. I walked back and saw my key staring at me. Taunting me. For the love of Pete.

On top of that, I'd changed from my tan patent leather Coach bag to my burgundy distressed leather Brio bag (italian, you know) and I left my AAA card in my Coach bag. Gr. So I'm stranded at church with my key mocking my and no AAA card. So I whip out my blackberry, track down AAA and graciously they look up my account without my card.

Blessedly it only took him 20 minutes to get to me. He was gracious enough not to make me stand in the pouring rain (oh yes, it started raining immediately after I walked outside). Took him 2 minutes and he even gave me a water bottle (random, but thoughtful).

The moral of the story is that when you're stressed out you make silly mistakes. Also, EVERYTHING feels like a crisis when you're already stressed out. We've all got to find ways to relieve stress other than getting stuck in the rain with AAA. Preferably before that step.

Ok time to put this day behind me.

OMG! Becca, I know exactly what you mean! I just think it's crazy that you can become physically sick from the stress you endure sometimes. I don't even want to talk about what the whole moving cross country to a state where I don't know anyone and being unemployed thing has done to my body! I hope that you get a chance to relax and that it doesn't get worse for you! Thanks for sharin'!
