Things have been trying here lately. Stress levels have been off the chart. I’m taking on more each day than the day before and I’m having trouble keeping up. Thinking about what I have to do sets my mind racing and my heart pounding. I know I’ve mentioned my father not being well. Over the past year or so I have taken on many responsibilities that he used to handle and this includes overseeing my uncle. I feel stretched much of the time.
When I find myself feeling overwhelmed I schedule myself a special movie night. I have rules for these nights. The movie has to be a “feel good” story. It is always something I have watched before and usually something I like so much I have the DVD. Last night I watched “Notting Hill”. There is no better feel good love story. I love the quirky cast of characters. I love that things work out in the end. After a couple of hours away from real life I feel refreshed and ready to tackle whatever my day brings. How do you escape everyday stress? What are your guilty pleasure feel good movies?
