Could it be that a beautiful perfume might reduce my feelings of anxiety?
Breathing deeply is supposed to help, so maybe if I buy that bottle of Meow perfume, about which I wrote in yesterday’s blog entry, it will encourage me to partake of more air when it is of a lovely scented variety.
That thought occurred to me as my almost-4-year-old daughter placed her oatmeal bowl on my desk. She said, “I’ll leave this here for you, Mama, so you can smell it. Go like this…”
And she demonstrated a deep breath, which she released with a satisfied, “ahhhhhh”.
