Did you ever have a music box as a child?
The music box seems ancient now like a twinkling antique. Envision your special little chest. Mine (of course) was pink. When I opened it, a tiny ballerina would pop up in front of a mini mirror and twirl to the tune.
Looking back and analyzing, the concept of the music box resembles a coping strategy for stress. In any circumstance, at any time of the day, no matter how chaotic or difficult, I could always count on my music box to relieve my stress and take me away to the land of satin slippers and immaculate hair buns (with no bumps!).
Like my music box, I hope this page can be a consistent place to stress relieve and reboot. If life seems overwhelming or perhaps constricting, this page will always have its teensy list of mini self-helps, small and accessible enough for daily practice.
Take care of your self well. If you keep your self healthy, you can better take care of others.
Place your stress relieving treasures for safekeeping in our music box. Please comment and I can add them to our list as a publication with your name as authorship.

Small but highly supportive messages can be integrated throughout the informative image. Similar to […]
