Lately I have been dealing with quite a bit of stress. I always tell myself I must keep myself grounded in the reality of what is truly important to me. That tends to take away some of the stress. Also, just the other day I was driving around and noticed a pleasant area filled with fountains, trees, and benches. I proceeded to take a nice stroll through this area and let the good sensations, sounds of birds, and lovely weather fill my consciousness. That indeed seemed to take away much of the pressure. So even though I’m in a bit of a quandary with regard to functions and deadlines I must meet, there is always the benefit of also noticing the more pleasant aspects of certain situations.
