Friday's Goal.....

As I sit here this evening I've made a decision that for my mental health I can't wake up another morning to the horrible news happening around the world, Japan foremost on my mind. My goal for tomorrow will be to not watch a shred of news. I know the updates will be heart wrenching, there will be more Saturday, but at this moment in time I can't take one more morning of my chest tightening and feeling like a full fledged anxiety attack will do me in as I listen to what has happened while I slept. I'm not burying my head in the sand, I'm just taking a little breather from it.......something those across the ocean cannot do. My heart breaks for all in Japan living with the aftermath of the quake, tsunami and continuing horror of a possible nuclear meltdown.


  1. So far, so good.....and I already feel better. In the back of my mind I know there is much happening out in the world this morning but I'm in my little cocoon and not hearing least for today. I'm never glued to the news, only watch/listen in the morning and then again early evening but that's been too much lately.

  2. I've had to do the same thing a few times over this last week. The news is so bad and hard to keep watching. It just gets to me so much sometimes that I need to give my mind a break and try to think of other things. Too bad the Japanese can't turn it off and forget about it for a while.

  3. I had to quit on Tuesday....having gone through the katrina debacle personally...I have found that bad news constantly is really bad for your heart and health. I am so sad for Japan but I cannot bear to watch it. I will watch again on sunday morning, and then put it away for the week. Prayers up for them.


I love your comments - thank you!
