“Two things that help me the most through rough times (also known as mind storms)…… repeating in my head (All I HAVE to do right now is Breath, Trust, Love) and I will just sit with my kids and not talk…. I will respond with gestures… facial expressions… perhaps help them with something while i sit. I call this a talking strike… and I do my talking strike with love. It is the best gift I can give myself these days”. quoted from Carla Dawn
