Word-Full Wednesday

As you get to know me, you may see that sometimes I like to go "against the grain." (LOL). Many people have wordless Wednesdays, so I will have "word-full Wednesday." This will consist of a word, a phrase or a "charge" that we can all think about this day as we juggle that will remind us to stay centered, focused, and calm.

Our word for today is breathe. Something so simple, something we take for granted. Take 10 minutes once or more during the day. Breathe. You're probably saying "you have teens, you can do that." Yes; however, you will see from future posts that teens are quite time consuming in themselves and will often come in thinking they need to share at that very second. (different issue). Don't worry. When we juggle, the good times with our kids and family can be guilt free and much more special as we are so happy to be with them. Quality, not quantity. To do it all, and do it effectively I need my times to breathe. If you have a baby that is crying, take the baby and just hold her, but sit quietly and think of nothing else. When my teens ask me what I'm doing, they know when I say I need to breathe. They know the times like that, whether sitting and reading a magazine for a few minutes or just existing, help me to be a nicer mom, :) better equipped to deal with what the day has in store. Enjoy your day and breathe.

I agree we need to take time out and relax and breath.
