Just this

What I want to say is what I want for myself, today, and hopefully it is worth wanting for anyone reading as well.

If you are driving, cooking, steering through a tantrum, or waiting for an oil change, maybe don't read this yet - read it later.

For the length of time it would take to read a post:

Stop. Stop everything. Stop reading. Stop looking. Stop moving. Push aside your chair and lie down on the floor and put your feet up gently and symmetrically. Let your weight sink into the ground. And please breathe. In. Out. In. Out.

I need to take the fish out of the freezer...

In. Outinout. In. 

The waist of these pants fits funny...what is that sound, uh oh...

If you have any trouble breathing, don't breathe but maybe just sense the weight of your body over and over and over.

....

....

And in three minutes, when you would have finished reading the post, then decide if you want to stay longer, or get up.

And that's what I have to say today.
