Andddd breatheee! Sophie is potentially one of the best relaxers I’ve ever seen. She can sleep like no one’s business. Something she is not good at, however, is remaining calm when chaos ensues. She’s a sensitive soul, but even the slightest change can make her stress out.
Watching her stress out when it’s not always necessary has made me take a step back and think about how I might be able to adjust my own reactions. So many things happen every day, and there’s so much stress in everyone’s lives, making it challenging not to freak out at the tiniest of things. But, Sophie and I are both thinking about how we might best use our energy (i.e. not on a loud truck driving by, or tight but doable deadline), instead of spending energy on negative things left and right!
