“I can never fall asleep! I never get to do anything special! I never get one on one time!” These are the awfulizing moans that come from our five year old on a regular basis.
Many of us may fall into adult versions of the same state of being,”The world is ending. I never have enough time. I spend my whole day picking up after other people.”
Here’s the bright side; when we put negative projections,(awfulizing) aside and look at that one moment we are in, the only true thing is that we are breathing and that breath is followed by another breath. Through politics, dishes and conflicts on the playground, it is our breath that will see us to the next moment.
