Take me OM…

OM is a mantra traditionally used at the beginning and end of a yoga session and should be used by ALL moms, in my opinion. It doesn’t matter if you are a new mom, a mom of teens or a grandmom, at some point in your life, you have searched for this thing called PEACE & QUIET. Peace from demands, bills, aggravation, expectations, your significant other and your kids. Yes we want to escape… Shocker!!!

I used to wonder why my mom would sit in the bathroom for almost an hour. Then, yep it happened to me. I found myself sitting in the bathroom just to gather my thoughts, unwind and honestly to escape. Calvin, take me away… Opps, I meant Calgon. Dang autocorrect! ha!

This new “oasis” was perfect for meditation. I found myself thinking of new ideas, making plans and sometimes just dreaming about what-ifs. My kids learned where to find me and soon my “oasis” turned into h… well I’ll be nice, the rest of the house. I quickly relocated to my car. Yes I know. But the birds chirping, the squirrels running and especially the Hawks were a sight to see from time to time. In order to continue being as great as we are, we need time to disconnect, unwind and yes ESCAPE!

As I sit here in my car sharing my story, I wonder if you too have found your “Oasis”, your OM, your place to disconnect?  It’s just what the Doctor ordered.  Girl, go get your Groove on in Peace & Quiet… And be unapologetic about it.

Stop, Drop & Teach me how to Om…
