This may have been posted last summer but the sentiment is rock solid. I’m embracing my humanness – perhaps by the pool with a nice cold drink in my hand.
“In my capacity as a non-scientist, I have observed that when it comes to stress, there are two kinds of people.
One is the kind of person who feels the effects of stress first in their body; the other feels it first in their mind.
Piggy and I both fall into the first category. We’re skilled jugglers, and we tend to think “Sure, I can add one more ball into the mix.” We don’t really register how stressed we are until we get migraines (her) or muscle spasms (me). Other people in this category might experience digestive problems, insomnia, frequent colds, loss of energy, chest pains, racing heartbeats, panic attacks, and other such unfair bullshit.”
