Yesterday was rough.
I had this whole picture of what my first Mother’s Day would be: breakfast in bed, fresh picked flowers, a parade in my honor. You know, nothing over the top.
Instead, I was back-handed by my own immune system with pharyngitis two days before. And it seemed like anything that could go wrong yesterday, went wrong.
Needless to say, this was me:
I was so worked up that while we were eating at Red Lobster, my anxiety went into overdrive. I got light-headed, dizzy, and thought I would faint.
Today, while driving back from the doctor, Huff the Hubs and I were talking about yesterday and how I felt like I was going to pass out at the restaurant. His response?
“I know, I was worried. You’re like those fainting goats.”
I stared at him for a second. Then, the image of the animals popped in my head and I cracked up.
If you haven’t seen the fainting goats, here’s what HtH was talking about:
So, anxiety-suffering friends I have a challenge for you. Next time you feel overwhelmed and like you may pass out from the anxiety, just picture these goats. (I’m going to!) and I all but guarantee you’ll be laughing and feeling calmer very soon!
