As I look over at my baby, who did not sleep well last night and woke earlier than our new routine, calling for attention and snuggles I realize I need to release. It does not good to hold these frustrations and I cannot share them with my sweet, innocent child. So I laugh. It is forced at first but as my daughter smiles back at me it becomes more and more genuine.
My blog becomes secondary. My timeline that I have carefully plotted in my head goes out the window. I plop down on the floor next to my daughter's playmat and we do sound play together, testing out different laughs and sounds. My frustrations seem minor now and their shadow is gone.
I'm grateful to free myself from the frustrations that were creeping in. I'm grateful to re-start this day with laughter. I'm grateful for my laughter yoga training that reminds me to laugh even when I may not feel it at first. I'm grateful for my daughter's laugh, which is one of the best sounds in the world. I'm grateful to choose playfulness and joy. I'm grateful to have a beautiful day ahead.
How do you release frustrations and start over? What will you choose for today?
May today remind us of our power to create our reality. May we choose to embrace this creative power. Have a beautiful day!
