Sharing a question, confession, and a quote every Thursday
I think had an anxiety attack yesterday. I hallucinated a little. My brain froze up. I had to pass out on the couch for a few minutes.
Sometimes I get so overwhelmed.
If I don’t stop, my body takes over and makes me stop.
Today I still have too much on my plate. Don’t we all? Any perceived free time and my brain starts stuffing it full with tasks and goals and creations as soon as my morning coffee opens my eyes. Then my brain searches for more minutes and more things to do until I finally pass out at night in my bed.
I read a story to my children just now. That was all it took to calm me down and let go of all my “oh so very important” tasks. We talked about letters and the alphabet and sounded out a few words. Little achievements that made us all feel good.
It’s time to slow down.
Time to be present.

There it is. It’s in the breath. Much better. - Me. I said that. Just now.
Do you try to do it all? What keeps you balanced? How do you remember to do those things that keep you balanced?
