Anyways, I digress. Point being, when things start getting heated in a discussion with your lover, your friend, your roommate, your mom, your boss - whoever - it's super important to take a pause and practice mindfulness. When caught up in the heat of the moment, we often say and do things that are not representative of our highest, most loving and evolved selves. And that's not cute! So, the trick is to call a time-out before anything hurtful gets said, grab the dog and walk it out. It's amazing what some fresh air and a change in scenery can do for your soul. No dog? No biggie. Walk it out, nonetheless. One 15-minute walk around the block around midnight last night allowed me to clear my head, cool off, practice some ujjayi yoga breath and remember what's really important. LOVE. It always comes back to LOVE. The big picture is that we chose to spend this one wild, precious life together because we love each other and we're in this for the long run so everything else can just walk it out.
