SOL #12 2018

My one little word is BREATHE.  Every day, I seem to be in such a frantic rush.  I sleep until the very last second before my alarm goes off.  5:45 am.  Gym clothes strategically placed on my tub in the bathroom, waiting for me to rush out the door for a quick workout, for “me time” at the Y.  I then race in the door, grab my coffee, jump in the shower, and throw my hair in a wet ponytail.  “Are you ready?” I call out to my kids in hopes that they have done everything from brushing their teeth to grabbing their lunch boxes.  The day goes on and on this way, day after day, week after week, and what feels like year after year.  BREATHE.  I need to say this more often.  The simple act of taking a slow, deep breath every now and then could be my one little word that could make all the difference.  Can you tell I’m missing our slower paced weekend?

  1. It’s so hard to find those moments when you are working, raising kids, keeping up with day to day chores. I sometimes wonder how I got through it. I have no real advice for you. Sorry. You’ve got the word, you just have to find the time to do it.

  2. Your slice is written so I can feel the rush and also am reminded to breath. I think your OLW is serving you well. My OLW is Action as I find that I hesitate and miss out on things. So I’m trying to participate more through action. Thanks for reminding me of my OLW.

  3. I have not even had a moment to BREATHE this year to get to my OLW! I could get the sense of your feelings of being rushed through your day through your description. I try to do some yoga breathing when I’m in the car or the bathroom or before big meetings – it serves me well 🙂 Good luck!
