Mama Lesson #9
by Wendy Garafalo on November 14th, 2015

Mama lesson #9. Find peace amidst chaos. I don't know what you picture as peaceful, but for me its a body of water, with a light breeze and the sun shining down on me. There are only a few times in my life I've actually lived this peace. My life is chaos. Avi is usually always in the dirt, spreading it around her legs and the house. Luca loves when he sees the gardener use the leaf blower. His favorite activity is to make his own leaf blower and he uses his mouth to make the noise. He'll pretend to blow leaves in the back yard forever. I've noticed, he uses the leaf blower sound as a way to soothe himself when he's upset because I've told him no or to be patient. It's his peace, his moment of feeling useful, creative and independent. It reminds me to take a deep breath and to allow my breath to be my peace. No matter what sounds or craziness surrounds you, breathe, hear yourself and let it sooth you. Again, thanks for the lesson my little guru. Namaste!
