Something fun to start your week
I love this! I’m sitting on my deck, watching hummingbirds and searching for a hummingbird nest that I think is nearby in the trees. When I do this, I am doing is focusing on the hummingbirds, which is very very relaxing. Have a great Labor Day!
Thank you for this idea. I’m a writer, but I’m a technical writer, not a prose writer. My therapist would like me to write/draw in a journal for the 2.5 weeks she is off visiting family and friends in her home country (a former soviet state). My kids (adult kids) were adopted from Russia at the ages of 25 months--daughter--and 8.5 months--son, not related. My therapist knows about orphanage life in the former Soviet Union. I’ve been under massive stress for 19 years from my kids’ permanent brain damage (FAS--fetal alcohol syndrome), extreme ADHD (think ADHD on mega-steroids), their own PTSD (both kids had to learn how to cry. Crying meant nothing in an orphanage, it only wasted energy.)
Looking at life in a snow globe will help me bring today into focus, rather than dwelling on the past. Thank you for sharing this tip. 😊
Thank you Adrienne for another funny yet spot on comic!! Are you in my head? Haha Have a great week!!
on the one hand, finding myself in a nice safe snowglobe feels like a nice idea. On the other hand, my doggo is in there with me...and he's shedding....so all those lovely snowflakes are actually tuffs of dog hair....so there's that.
This is a totally relatable depiction of ‘staying present’ and ‘be here now’ -- which I hear in my meditation apps every dang day. “Be in your snow globe” works for me better. Thank you.
I love your analogy! Thank you so much
Love this idea
! I just finished a vigorous walk to beat the heat that's coming (90F predicted) and at this moment I'm sitting on my deck watching the lake and listening to the leaves rustling in the light breeze.
I like it, very much. Thanks!
You are divine...my sanity-saver and wonderful resource for truth & humor🤗 If you ever find a partner to create swag/merchandise, I might return to my youth and have a huggable something fun on my sofa/bed pillow. Sincerest Thanks for sharing your love, in-sights and humor❣️😘🙃😁
Btw...the reason this is SO hilarious is that a relative actually gave my kids snowglobes for Christmas...that you absolitely can slide a photo into...and my hubs and I each have 1. I'm now off to their rooms (its scarey cuz their now teens) to try & find them🤣❣️
Love it. We focus on this in my 12 step program - One day at a time. But I really love analogies and this one is beautiful! I’ll share with my meeting if that’s ok - I’ll give you full credit 😉 💜☮️
This was fabulous 🤩
Love this concept! Needed it more over weekend but will try to remember it daily going forward.
I really enjoy the snowglobe analogy. I think that visual is great. If you ever create a cartoon with color of the concept, I would buy it to frame in my house as a reminder.
Perfect imagery for the upcoming Monday/Tuesday crossover from a long weekend, and all the crazy that entails!
This is brilliant!! Thank you! I've shared it with those I love! Happy Labor Day!
