So many songs are composed about breathing. It’s a reflex action that the body performs, it’s not something we even think about. Our bodies can’t forget to breathe, they’re just not built that way. So it’s interesting that we have to keep reminding ourselves to … breathe.
One of the breathing songs I like so much is by Alesha Dixon. I think it’s the chanterlude that does it for me.
… ladies never lose compoooooosure…
I’m an overthinker. I analyse everything. And I think everything can be analysed. So I find it hard to comprehend that some people do things ‘just because’. There has to be some deep-seated reason behind it, some motivation, some **insert appropriate foreign idiom here**
The weird thing is that any time I do things ‘just because’, I end up in trouble. I blame it on my Se function. It’s inferior for a reason.
Today I did something ‘just because’. It felt right, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
It wasn’t, clearly.
So now I am reminded of the obvious. Before I say, text, or tweet anything, I need to stop, think, breathe, count to ten.
[and possibly chant ladies never lose compooooooooosure]
Of course that will make conversations much slower … but then it will also keep my foot off my mouth. I know I’m getting into yoga, but I’m not that flexible… yet.
Someday, I shall be able to twist like a yogi, suck on my big toe and make it look good. Till then…
Breathe slow, count from one to ten with my eyes closed, cause ladies take it in and get compooooosure, ladies never lose compooooosure.
Baby girl is growing up. Slowly, yes, but I’m getting there 🙂 Not really complaining though, I’d be lost without my daily dramas. Life would just be so … booorrrriiiinnggg!
