So since my life is crazy no matter what I do, I'm trying to change me. I'm a quiet yet high-strung kind of person, but I'm striving to be calmer. Not only will the stress-reduction be good for my heart, but I think a calm mother will make for a better environment for my girls to grow up in.
My relaxation techniques include asking God for help, imaging someone who's calm when I'm stressed, and saying repetitive prayers (a Rosary, the Divine Mercy) during my afternoon prayer time. I'd love to get in some meditation, but we'll see once Eleanor is okay with being out of my arms a little bit more.
And now for your viewing...pleasure? My toddler singing "Let It Go" at the top of her lungs. "Make the neighbors cringe" is the only volume level she has when it comes to this song no matter what I do.
