    Here's what I used for my Stress

    Before I started this 21 day program I thought stress was something I had to just cope with so thats what I did for years. This site explains how stress is the root cause of most of our bad thoughs, emotions, physical conditions and behaviors. I was pretty shocked cause I have never thought of this way. Anyhow I bought the program and am halfway through and I gotta say that so far it seems to be...

I was...

    I love my husband. We are different, and that is difference we have is that I am a very highly motivated person who wants to be involved and be successful. My husband is happy to sit on the couch as much as possible. In the beginning, it was good that he was able to teach me to slow down some and not hold myself at such high standards and not beat myself up when I don't reach the standards...
