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.

Oh well.

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!

Disclaimer: Kindly ignore the rest of the song lyrics, waaaay to intense for my mood today *grin*

  1. It’s amazing how many breathe songs are there….

    and in the same vein, how many songs have been written about home. I searched ‘home’ songs on my laptop and got quite a number.

    So, what did you do just because? I don’t do things just because either.

  2. LOL! I can’t help but insert a woiye here! The breathing tactic might help (By the by, before I youtubed the song I had a whole other tune for it in my head, and catchy to 🙂 Doing things just because takes some catching on to, so does having foot in mouth affliction, I’m a pro at both, we should compare notes 🙂


    hahaha, it’s a date. notes to compared over tea [for me and coffee for you] if you’re ever in my timezone 😉

  3. Feels funny. But just breathing for health ia ok. Holding breath for 10 counts is to me not healthy. I believe in saying it hot. You touch me wrongly, you catch red hot rod.

    hehehe, noted. does more harm than good though, at least in my case. i don’t like losing my temper coz i feel sad and empty once the anger is gone. that deep vacuum feling is the pits, pun intended. off to google ‘yoga & meditation exercises’ 🙂

  4. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.

    Exceptional Blog!

  6. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
