A Few Minutes

Days come that seem so overwhelming. And I need just a few minutes to pull it back together, breathe in, breathe out.
Here's where I can still myself. Slow down and be quiet.
This helps. It really does. I take five minutes outside, capturing the world around me. Five minutes, or until my heart beat begins to slow, my hands grow steady and I'm not so angry anymore.
Until I feel like I can go back in and speak calmly and be the mama my girls need me to be.

What centers you?

I like to sit down with a cup of green tea (with honey and milk of course) and read lovely blogs. I also love to go pick produce from the garden and gather eggs, I usually wait until the time in the day when I need some peace to do these things.

I like to scream, really loudly. Yawp, when possible. But I live on top of an optometrist's office, so I really never get to scream. Instead, I close my eyes and run through a scene or two from some war movie (or that war show I'm so nuts about...) and remind myself that it could be worse. I could have bullets whizzing around my head instead of matchbox cars.

Sometimes it helps. Sometimes I just write frustrated emails to Larry.
