Why is it life rolls along smoothly, then suddenly anything and everything that can go wrong does? The stresses of life never seem to spread themselves out over time so you can deal with them individually. Instead challenges pile up on you at one time like a massive pyramid.
That is what has happened to me in the past couple weeks. Individually everything would have been frustrating, but piled together has created stress. I went into the secretary of state to transfer vehicles into my name, only to find out that on there is a form to fill out and an assortment of information needed such as proof of registration or current plate number, pay-off letters, and mileage. Not a problem, right? Wrong. I have to look for a pay-off letter on my car. The key to the motor home broke in half when trying to gain entry and I have been trying to find someone who can remake a key from broken pieces. The company through which there is one car loan is making me jump through more hoops to assume the car loan than my mortgage company did renegotiating my mortgage. In the midst of all this the IRS is auditing the deductions we took on 2014 taxes, and the battery was dead in the pickup when my daughter tried to use it.
So what does one do when life stresses them out and they need to relax? Some people exercise, some people drink, some people take medication. Me….I play Candy Crush. I know, it was a craze for a while and that seems to have died down. Actually I hadn’t played in several months. Then one day with everything going on I needed to relax, to de-stress, and I clicked on the game. It is a good one to play when life is hectic because you only have five lives and then you have to quit for a while. It offers some challenge, but doesn’t require intense mental concentration. It allows me to decompress when life is chaotic. My advise to you, when life gets stressed crush candy.
