This is me as I usually appear - just imagine me waving to y'all!
I was thrilled to be asked to guest-post… I’m still rather a newbie at it and hope I don’t scare any of you away.
My little Ah-Ha moment of the week came as I brushed my teeth alongside my 4-year old.
Here’s a bit TMI about our funny little household. This particular habit has grown out of having a decade of ballet training, but not giving up some of your daily exercises long after your ballet company stint is done…
Just imagine the below ballet exercise:
Why on earth would she ask her tiny little dancers to imagine a 14,000 calorie treat?
Because it reset our perspective. Imagine that reward in the distance in front of you, concentrate on it, and suddenly you aren’t thinking so much about not falling over.
And amazingly, your balance begins to naturally shift. The wobbles lessen, the limbs straighten, and you may have to wipe a bit of drool off your chin.
The point being: when we focus on an ultimate reward that may not be right in front of our faces… balancing our lives can become easier.
As I stood at the top of my toes brushing my teeth, I realized that focusing on my ultimate Heavenly citizenship would help take the wobbles out of what I have to juggle today.
Important vs. Unimportant become clearer when our focus changes.
And that, my friends, is what doing toothbrush exercises with a certain little premiere danseur has taught me.
Nice to meet you! I'm Rachel from Once Upon A Miracle. Come on over to meet the rest of the family! They include my redneck husband, Mr. Daddy (who strongly insists that his boy ain't never gonna be a ballerina), our little miracle boy Itty Bit, and a sweet rescue mare Kona. I blog about faith, parenting, my deafness, and all the things in our crazy life that qualify for True Story Tuesdays! And once in while we get a treat when my husband hijacks our blog with some random hilarity. Hope to meet you soon!
