Have you watched the parents filming there kids at the zoo? Different animals exhibiting their instinctive behaviour behind thick safety glass. It struck me this morning that a lot of the thoughts in my head are just like those animals behind the glass.
I know, I'm weird and that is random. It is also incredibly helpful. Thanks to Headspace I have a new best friend in my meditation practice. That meditation practice has made it possible for me to put up that thick safety glass they use at the zoo. I can see anxiety approach the glass and lunge at me, I know it's there pawing to take over my insides but now I have a little more space and don't need to react. Okay, sometimes I do but even the kids at the zoo jump sometimes.
The other thing I have learned is that everyone has something behind their glass and somehow that is comforting.
