What an emotional day around here… Thank goodness my little one always can make me laugh.
Finally, after hours of stress, I sat down in the living room, looking out over the back yard and said (half aloud) “I need to sit.”
I sat with my cup of Koni Radiant Beauty white tea and took a deep breath. Out of nowhere, Ella said, “oh! SIT as in meditate!? I have just the thing. Stay there, don’t start.”
She ran to her room to retreive her Zune and plugged it into the amplifier for the main house speakers. Ella selected one of her favorite albums: Mike Cohen’s Om Dattatreya and proceeded to sit with her back to mine.
She sat still(ish) for an entire song, and it was enough to give both of us a fresh start for the day.
Tell me, how do you start over on a stressful day?
