Parents! Do you sometimes feel “under it”? Like everyone else is happily swimming and frolicking at the surface while you are down below?
Overwhelmed with life? The scheduling, driving to therapies, your pediatrician has your phone on speed dial, difficulty catching a break with your sweet atypical? Stressed out beyond belief? Feeling like you’re under water?
Study the photo carefully, for your inspiration. There is deep beauty under the sea, even at the very bottom. Take time to study your environment. Open your eyes. Breathe. Yes, even dance. There is no crime against dancing! Even while caring for your atypical.
Make a resolution: today I resolve to notice all the beauty that surrounds me and all the possibilities around me.
Tomorrow will be better.
Sending much love, Dr. Rita
