By following the simple advice I heard on a Dr. Phil Show, I have finally found inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started.
So I looked around my house to see things I started and hadn't finished; and, before leaving the house this morning I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bottle of Baileys, a bottle of Kahlua, a package of Oreo's, a pot of coffee, the rest of the Cheesecake, some Saltines and a box of Godiva Chocolates.
Very good advice. Let's see, what can I finish off before I leave this morning? Oh yes.... painting the baseboards and the trim, unpacking the rest of the kitchen stuff and putting it away, vacuming the rest of the house, a sinkful of dishes, yesterday's newspaper, last weekend's laundry that never got done...
Gee, I wonder why I don't feel "inner peace"? Instead, I feel more stressed!
