Monday Must: Take a Deep Breath

We all have those days when we need to step back and take a deep breath. Possible signs could be:

1) Becoming so angry with your teenager during school clothes shopping that you storm out of the freaky Hollister store and refuse to speak to him.

2) Text messages to your boss about what an ass he is.

3) Cry when watching True Blood clips from Comic Con because you love those people soooo much.

Solution: Close your bedroom door for half an hour, sit with the lights off and take deep calming breaths.

Afterwards the overwhelming issues of daily life are much easier to resolve.

1) Apologize to your teenager (even though secretly you still believe you were right).

2) Be happy you cleared the air. Your boss knows he is an ass so no resolution needed.

3) Remember these are not real characters.

When life becomes overwhelming…take a deep breath and realize…you could be this guy:



    LOLOL @ that picture.

    and HUGE HUGS for the deep breaths.

    <3 you.

  2. Ha, good idea! I do that calm breathing in a dark room thing all the time. :) It really does help, doesn't it?

  3. Ew, that poor person. Deep breathing helps, doesn't it? Who knew??

  4. NO joke. I took a deep breath just before I read the title of your post. It's been that kind of day. 1 teenager minus 4 wisdom teeth = unhappy mother. That's been my day. Oh and the barstool's I have to send back because apparently they were meant for gnomes. Repacking those puppies was tons of fun. SOunds like we live the same life. ;)


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
