Yesterday, while walking on the beach I spotted fins in the water. Sharks ! Adrenaline starting pumping and my heart began beating triple time. Just before I began running up and down the beach screaming to the early morning swimmers I asked a passer by if she knew the difference between sharks and dolphins. She did and they were dolphins. Aaaaaah the relief. Adrenaline stopped pumping and heart regulated itself. I walked my entire beach walk parallel with these happy creatures. And couldn’t help but notice the extreme change in my mind and body as a whole as I transitioned from shark alert to dolphin delight. I took that lesson with me and the next time I feel myself getting tense and worked up I will verify if it is truly a shark or a dolphin ?

I am in England for the next two weeks being a 24/7 hands on Mum to my 4 kiddos. I doubt I will be honored with being able to do/think/ blog anything profound so I will do the best I can with what I’ve got ( which isn’t a great deal).
Saw this quote that made me chuckle : I don’t have a bank account because I don’t know my mother’s maiden name. Paula Poundstone
Got a never ending list of people whose calls you need to return ? Take a moment and think of some one not on your radar who would really smile from hearing your voice. Think Grandmother. Think old school friend going through a hard time. You will make them feel good all day, changes are you’ll feel nice too. Not a bad investment for 3 minutes of your time
