GO TO TIMEOUT! I said to myself…

Annoyed and upset, I said aloud to myself, driving home, “You need to go to time out right NOW!!!!! I laughed because I sure did need a time-out!

That morning I found myself angry about everything. There were a hundred minor inconveniences that catapulted me into a hostile place. I woke up mad. The alarm when off too early. I was angry about getting dressed. These clothes were ALL terrible. I was waiting for an important phone call that should have come but didn’t. There were unknowns in work. I needed to pay bills, taxes, and grocery shopping. Blah blah blah

I happily do all these things every day, and I am usually relatively energized. 

So I sat down for a few minutes to think about what was happening and realized I had been neglecting my meditation and reading time lately. I haven’t taken time to center my mind and reconnect to the peace and contentment found in a few minutes out. We all have things in life that help center us and bring us back to our happy place. During this time of year, stress is waiting in every long line at the checkout, and traffic is insanely busy. So take a few extra minutes to put yourself in Time Out.

You will appreciate the outcome and smile while sitting in the corner.
