I was watching CNN the other day and it hit me. I was sitting there, holding my breath. My lungs weren’t expanding, and instead, I was taking in air in terse little bits. When I started to think about it, I realized that it had been many, many days since I had take a true, deep breath.
It is as though my brain has forgotten to make sure all of my systems are working together because so much energy is being expended on keeping CPSIA facts straight, deciding how I can keep my business alive, and wondering how our government could have made such an opus of a mistake.
My body, it appears, has been on constant high alert but I’m not sure that it’s doing anyone any good. So I’ve put my brain and lungs on notice. No more of this teeth clenching and half-hearted breath taking.
Time to bring oxygen-rich blood back into the mix and see the wonders that it will do for my state of mind.
So I say to you: Go ahead. Breathe.
