SU 2013

  • It was so great seeing you too. I came home with a huge regret that we didn't get a chance to visit more this time around or drive around and search for any fun landmarks. :) I am glad to hear that the boys are doing well and the birthday planning is in full swing. Keira's isn't until December and but we are already planning some super fun themes. I love party planning. Pinterest is really great for that kind of thing. Can't wait for next year already.

    Hugs,

  • Lindsay,

    It was so great, as usual, to see you at SU.  You are the mother of 3, no one can ever take that away from you.  

    I hear you on the stress/anxiety topic.  I feel like stress/anxiety are my middle name sometimes.  Yoga really is wonderful, if you can find a class that you like, or even a DVD to do at home.  Also just practicing "mindfulness" or meditation for 10 minutes a day where you just focus on your breath and keep redirecting your mind to the present moment and your breath if it starts wondering.  SUPER hard to do.  Even as I sit here and type this out, I have to say that I don't practice what I preach.  Have been wanting to get into a regular meditation practice for quite sometime, and yet I haven't.  Anyway - I hope you are able to find even just little things to keep you calm and centered when things start to feel stressful.

    Good luck with all the testing, therapies, and the birthday planning!  

    Lots of love,

    Libby

  • I just recently was taught about mindfulness from my therapist.  I find it does help just to focus on the now and for me to say that....it must work at least sometimes.   Yoga is great too.   One of my favorite things is planning C's birthday parties.  I'm with Jami pininterest is great for planning.   Hope your able to find some you time and able to just breathe.
