Had to return and reread this! I have a lot of stress right now.<br />
1. New Job<br />
2. 5 House Guests<br />
3. Need to change my address<br />
4. DL expired yesterday because I did not have the money to renew it<br />
5. Our truck is broke down, needs a tune-up<br />
6. Rent is due again in a few days<br />
7. Need to organize nice clothes for work again<br />
8. Need to go get mail from PO Box<br />
9. Have a borrowed vehicle, and need to borrow another one when he takes it back<br />
10. Have no minutes on my phone<br />
11. Need money<br />
12. Bank account overdrawn by the bank itself<br />
13. I have stress<br />
<br />
The majority of these have to do with money - or the lack thereof.<br />
Thanks for letting me dump this off here. I'm sure things will get better soon. <br />
There I go thinking positive again.

I really like them too, and have to apply them almost every minute so as not to fall victim to the pitfalls of life. haha

I am going to try, they seem easy enough hahaha<br />
