Sometimes, I think the key to happiness is zooming in.
Like if you look out around you and see that you are in the center of a wall-to-wall sea of toys and books and clothes (some clean, some dirty) with a baby crying on the floor a few feet away and a disheveled toddler in the corner announcing that she “has pee!” … try zooming in.
Bring your attention inward, follow the breath. Zoom in.
‘Cause then you might see that you are wearing pajamas at 1pm on a Wednesday, while playing your ukulele, perched safely above the mess atop a trampoline. See?
Just zoom in.
