This blog is somewhat inspired by Julia, and her all apologies idea. I'm not sure what happened to me yesterday, but I feel I may have been a little mean. If I was offended by MYSELF, I'm sure others were as well. So I am going to try to find those I hurt and apologize. I thought I dealt with stress well, but I guess I don't. So yesterday, I had class after work, and I got home in time to go play basketball. I think I should have listened to my little shoulder angel telling me not to go. I had other stuff I could have gotten done. Stress brings me down and last night, I was a downer. I snapped at people, I got frustrated and stormed out of the gym for a minute, then felt like a fool coming back in. I couldn't make a shot or defend to save my life, just not good all around. I don't like myself when I'm that way. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, my inner demon rears it's ugly mean head and I don't want it to. So, I'm looking for stress relief tips. I can see in the next couple weeks, the possibility of more stressful moments, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
