Several years ago I went to a therapist (the good one, not the strange, odd and flakey ones I needed to speed date first) not because I felt off but to make sure I was as on as I could be.
If we can walk by plants day after day and not know they are dying, it might be the same of ourselves.
I want always to be my best. Better than best. I begged her for a solution other than time because I am always impatient for ultimate happiness and wellness.
She got out a piece of paper and I got really excited.
Ooooh I love solutions.
Would it be a name of a doctor? Miracle worker? A magic potion? A book? Perhaps needles stuck everywhere and a side order of hypnosis? A delicious drug program with only gorgeous, fabulous side effects?
She scribbled something quickly.
And with all the anticipation of a blind date that comes highly, highly recommended- I grabbed it and read it outloud
I looked at her and said Are you kidding me? This is it? I was pissed.
She said Try it. Say it to yourself when things are tough.
And I did.
I found it in my bed side table yesterday.
I thought I would share it with you.
You might be surprised.
It has occurred to me of all the fabulous, beautiful and lofty things we really want for our children (and ourselves) peace is everything.
