          This is my submission to Writer’s quote Wednesday, hosted by silver Threading. I wish I could follow up with a few words but after a long week(end), a quote pic is as much as I could handle. Thankfully, Henry ward’s quote has done the bulk of the taking. Still, I plan to do better next time. Hope you have a stress-free and worry-free week ahead.

  1. What a great choice, Ameena, and so true. Worry and the associated stress can lead to physical illness and mental breakdowns. When you’re worried, you can’t think straight and all aspects of life are harder to deal with than they should be. It wasn’t until I walked away from what was causing my own stress that I finally found the breathing space to write again.

    1. Oh I am so glad to could relate to this. I am a worrier and nine out of ten times I realise, worrying does no good. It’s a hard trait to let go, I believe in baby steps. 🙂

  2. I must categorically disagree with Henry Ward Beecher. Work in many Third World environments kills at a frightening rate. At this moment, children as young as 7 years old are working in mica mines in Africa (mica is used in the making of lithium ion rechargeable batteries used in computers and power tools) ; others are working in cocoa plantations and dying from exhaustion, corporal punishment, lack of medical attention and general mistreatment – not from stress. We ignore this, or don’t even know. I was worked so hard on the farm where I was raised that my back was ruined – that was in the 1950’s. I was certainly too young to “do” stress! Thousands of people died of overwork and exhaustion while slaving for the Nazis on their war-work projects – and they were way past doing stress. If you did not work, you did not eat. If you complained, you were punished with more work. And, that remains the reality of the world. Work as invented to serve the machine of the Matrix is a killer, and it is also an insatiable insanity, totally unnecessary in a naturally evolved society, remnants of which are now few and far between. The physical violence of harsh physical labour is only too real.
