Today’s song is Pressure by Billy Joel, off of his album The Nylon Curtain.

Over the past week I’ve been struggling with various pressures that I haven’t found a solution for yet. My career, politics, world events, being able to afford college for my kids, just a lot of stuff piling up and overwhelming me at times.

yyyyyAs always, the solution remains: withdraw and recharge. Spend time in God’s presence. And take care of my health.

Modifying my diet hasn’t really happened yet, but I am getting more exercise, and that helps. I’ll definitely be healthier after I finish allergy treatments–I’m having to take shots because I have been sick most of the year due to allergies, and that kind of pressure never helps you think clearly. Getting adequate sleep also helps, and I haven’t done a very good job of that as of late.

I don’t have much to offer in this post, and I apologize for that. Stress has been getting the best of me lately, and it’s more important than ever that I take my concerns and fears to God. I hope you’ll do the same. He’s the only one who knows how to fix whatever problems you have, or get you through the problems to the other side.
