Yesterday was one of those insane, harried days, when everything that could go wrong did. And I forgot to breathe – nice deep relaxing breaths…..I was hurried, harried and anxious – never a great combination. But how easy it is for me to fall back into that old self with those old coping mechanisms.
I have to make a conscious effort to stop, and slow down some days. And remember that not everything needs to be done now, and that things can wait.
But when I get tired, it’s easy to be overwhelmed and carried away.
So my lesson – from my son is to slow. So I will. And take in some nice deep breaths and just let things slide a little. It won’t be the end of the world if I do, and by slowing down I can spend more time in the moment, with my family, rather than hurrying to chase some crazy self imposed deadline.
