May being Mental Health Month is designed for us to remember we are mind, body and spirit. We need to take care of all three aspects of our being. So please, commit to taking care of yourselves. This poem was written to remind us how important it is for our total health to destress!
Love and realness,
Stress? I Don't Think So! Think So!
By Dr. Lindamichellebaron
When I turn this way, life turns that. I have no idea where my money's at. My hair's undid, my clothes don't fit, So, I take a moment to laugh at it. Overcome my stress with wit. I smile.
I'm knocked down every time I stand. Not one thing goes the way I planned. I can't even hold on to my man.
But when stress caught up to me, I ran. I choose to love life all I can.
Stress tries to overtake me, Overpower and undertake me, I know the devil is a lie. I refuse to curse my God and die.
The devil and I are in a dual. I rest, reflect and then refuel.
I know there is a power greater than I.
I prefer to instead of cry. I smile.
