Quote of the day~

"Mom, let's just change the channel."
Max, my son, age 9

This now famous line was uttered in the heat of frustration when Max could no longer tolerate his sister's ranting and raving from the car's back seat.

I was reminded of this hilarious scene in my meditation this morning thinking about how easily we can slip into a negative frame of mind, mood, or  mental loop that does not serve us.

It takes an awareness that we are "there" and then a conscious action to "change the channel". It is just that simple too. Click. Click. Click. Pick a channel -- comedy, inspiring, educational, artistic -- any channel that allows you to slip into a new frame of mind; one that is positive, inquisitive, amused, or calm.  

Notice the difference?
