Of all of the mindfulness practices I've tried - meditation,
journaling, yoga - coloring works best! I am totally in the moment. I lose
track of time. I'm relaxed and happy . . . . All while playing with color!
I think I've found my happy place!
I've been coloring alongside Sofia while she's eating breakfast in the morning. It's amazing how peaceful I feel and how much I enjoy being alongside my girl! Every morning she's complimented me on my "masterpiece" - "Mommy, that is beautiful!" - which also feels great!
Today I was short on time and I went with one color, and had Sofia help me finish it as I wrapped up breakfast so we could get out the door for school.
