may say I’m a dreamer worrier
But I’m not the only one
some day you’ll join us me for a cure for anxiety
Because this sH!t! really sucks
All credit to John Winston Lennon. Today I learned his middle name. Too bad that took me so long or we could have named Pony-Boy Winston or I could have made his pseudonym Winston. Then he’d be a WW alliteration.
Anyway, this feeble play on classical lyrics is my way of saying I found something new. It helped me and maybe it might help you. And my tip is a little thing, miniscule really.
I changed my settings for all the sounds on my cell phone
As if there is any other kind of phone ya know because it is 2018 after all. 🙂
Nothing out of the box even. I picked from what’s available through Apple. Before I did this, I would figuratively jump out of my skin every time I got an email, call, or text. I always did an angry growl hiss when this happened. Rrrrrrrrrr! And my heart would beat just a little bit faster!
Especially when I got a text from Lulu. Cuz you know she only reaches out to me in crisis. Or so I tell myself. When that is not even true … all the time anyway.
Now I do what B does. I told her I am old and cannot text well and with my left arm incapacitated (for infinity because you know I will milk it ’til then) she needs to CALL me. Not like I refuse her texts because that’s better than nuthing. But I get more calls and fewer texts this semester.
In fact, she called me FIRST yesterday instead of the other way around. It was about 8 a.m, but I did not answer. A taste of her own medicine? NO, I had my ringer off and simply didn’t hear it (cough, cough, excuse). Tis true. I am a notorious non-answer(er). I’m old I tell ya. I frequently lose my phone. She waited patiently for about three hours before following her call with this text “little worried you aren’t answering your phone”
Wow Helen’s Phone Calls/Calling prompt is my theme of the day on this lovely Sunday!
Anyhoo, change your sounds to something soothing. You’ll be glad you did. 5 cents for this advice as I channel my inner Lucy.
As always, more to come.
