A Time to Pause

Today I found myself in a position where time to pause, (and take several deep breathes!) was desperately needed.  After ranting, mostly to myself, I was able to take that time by focussing my attention to the tasks of the day ahead but, every time there was gap, I was straight back to that place of… well, steaming…

So I’m left sitting here hours and hours later, recognising that I’m still pretty steamed about the situation and still desperately needing to take deep, deep  breaths, calm the heck down and remember to…
