By the way, yes, I do take requests for red carpet posts. If there's an event you'd like me to take a look at, just let me know.
Anyways. Today in my stress management group over at the cancer support center, we were talking about control. Realizing what we can control - and what we can't - goes a long way towards reducing stress. We talked a bit about where we have control and one point that came up is that our thoughts control our feelings. I know that this is true at least some of the time - when I'm thinking negative thoughts, I feel unhappy - but I didn't think that it was true in every case. For some reason I thought that feelings just happened and that they influenced thoughts. I have to think about this some more.
In other news, our patio furniture was delivered today. We got a yellow umbrella instead of the tan that we thought we purchased but I think I like the yellow. I snapped a not-so-good picture with my phone for you:
Nice, isn't it?
