Dear Stress, Let’s Break Up

Dear stress, let's break up

Interesting how we CELEBRATE labor day by not working.

That is an impossible task to ask, don’tcha think ??!!

“If stressed burned calories, I’d be a super model.”

In celebration of LABOR DAY today….

I thought it would be great to start a new way of thinking….

Great quote about stress


That’s my new MANTRA.

Want to join me?!

    Hi Lynne, I hope I finally fixed the problem by typing in my correct URL website. Sorry about that. Oh my that stressed me out. I’m ok now! Thank you for letting me know.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Oh Noooo @peachyteachy,
      Are you sure you want to know 7 things about me? This could be embarrassing. Everyone will have to cover their eyes and look away, while trying to read my list. This won’t be pretty. 🙂
      Lynne 🙂

  2. your commentary over on that diy grapevine ditty won me over. and i’m serious about wanting to make these immediately. i’ll be back to devour more of your delicious blog. stop by if you have a moment!

    smiles to you.


    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Bisous !

  3. Carolyn says:

    I’d love to join you and break up with stress. I just came across your blog today and cannot wait to glance through it all.

  4. Mary says:

    I’m chanting. Stress causes holes in your stomach, followed by helicopter tours (not the good kind), followed by long stays in an odd all inclusive faciltiy, followed by months of rest to get over the awful food in the all inclusive, followed by never being able to have a damned glass of wine again! I’m chanting.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      LOL Mary…that all inclusive facility would definitely be a place to avoid. The sound of rubber padded walls doesn’t sound too exciting. LOL. It is never THAT bad. 🙂

  5. Donna says:

    I stopped doing ‘stress’ a long time ago – so negative – people feel they can’t do anything about stress –

    I do however, do: annoyed, angry, busy, irate, ticked off, exasperated, furious etc. These emotions can be acted on and dealt with – and stress never has a chance! 🙂

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      You are the wise one. Every.Single.Time. Good point !! I’m giving it a try. Ciao stress. See ya later,alligator.

  6. Don McKee says:

    OK, You talked me into it! I’m for sure breaking up with stress,It has no place in my life,I’ll kick it’s butt out of my life!!
    Thanks for helping it along.

  7. peachyteachy says:

    Clearly, I needed this particular message today. If you judge by my dreamscape these days:
    Thanks, and I am clearing a space on my desk of inspiration in my classroom.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      You d’best. Loved your post & your crazy butt dream.
      Secretly, I am jumping up and down that my kids started back in school today. Dear teachers, you rock out loud.

  8. Oh I misunderstood the concept. Sid and I worked all day.

  9. Don McNevin says:

    Show stress its place, by the curb next to waste cans. I refuse to let stress gain a toe hold. Have to find the humour in any situation, it may be hidden, but it is there.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Wooohoooo Don…my twitter bud… we have some good laughs on twitter. Stress?! What stress??!!
      * big smiles, all the way *

  10. Suzanne says:

    Stress just doesn’t want to let go. Love the mantra, I’m stressing about breaking up with stress. I would probably look 10 yrs younger with less of it. I’m with you!!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Whaaaat?! Suzanne, I can see a photo of you, and if you look any younger, I will feel like an old bat. Ok, I am an old bat.
      P.s. Hang in there, pugs and vets can be a tricky combination. xx

      • Suzanne says:

        LOL, you are too kind! Picture taken in darkened room,, with photo booth. Not really representative thank u though, made my day. Yes, the pugs health issues are causing a lot of angst.. Just want to get back to normal, You rock, thank u so much for the encouragement,

  11. Dawna Jones says:

    Im with you baby. Stress has recently blessed me with 4 cold sores. Thank you I don’t want to just break up I want a f$&kin divorce thank you very much.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      I hear ya sista!! I think it must be the time of year, or the moon is not aligned with some freaking stars…or something nutty like that. Cold sores?! You poor thaaaang. Those suck. I am going to stop feeling sorry for myself now. LOL.
      Love, the hot flashin’ crazed gal {dreaming of NO stress}. xx

  12. Darling….of course I will support your breakup with Stress! I mat do the same.

    • Tracy says:

      • Lynne Knowlton says:

        Hiya Tracy
        How’s that gorgeous shed of yours with that stunning chandelier? I bet your are knocking the sox off of it all.
        Keep rocking it ! Thinking of you…miss island girl.

        • Tracy says:

          Lynne as always, things are changing around the shed with the chandelier but there is always a constant of reflection, focus, thought and creative going ons inside 🙂 the heat of the summer is still with us so as we say here ‘siga siga” slowly slowly … going into what I always see this time of year as my “Creative New Year” so Happy Creative New Year x

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Yah Betty,
      Let’s kick stress to the curb. Right along side of hot flashes. Eeeek.
