Castle of Stress

Stress is the disease of the century. The root of all evils.
Battling stress is likely to become the achievement of the future.

My personal encounter with stress happened last year. Only last year, as my overhappy nature had prevented other (close) encounters. I realized I was stressed when I wasn’t smiling like a Cheshire cat as often as usual. Then it grew deeper, I developed stomach pangs or the first step towards gastritis. Everything was a blur, I felt worn out. Nevertheless I couldn’t sleep. And which was worse, I couldn’t think.

In my job and business I need fresh good ideas everyday, not to mention the “fitting of the giraffe in the fridge“. So I decided to stop. I counted the activities that made me happy and I realized I hadn’t been exercising in a while.

Now I admit I overdo it, I exert myself too much as it is my source of well-being…

As an entrepreneur the sources of stress line your path. The idea is to try and solve issues and situations in the best way possible, always smiling and always kind. If you can’t, move on and find better ways of helping others and yourself.

I help myself by writing – juggling words – reading – cycling – planking – drinking tea. My help towards you is yet to be seen as I will always find a way. As I have said before: “If I am happy, I am to make you happy.”

Consequently, this piece of art makes me happy. I do hope it creates a mutual feeling.

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

“Language is not like the sun,
heating and scorching
but like the moon
keeping secrets
and the arcane magic of the night
throwing stars
in the lilacs’ claws
till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz
