In theory, I should be studying for my TEF (which is two days away) or even planning some lessons for my students, but I honestly am beginning to zone out just thinking about all the crap I need to accomplish.

For just a few seconds, I discovered that I wasn't reacting to anything. My mind was empty of any thoughts. I was only breathing in and out.

Suddenly, this cartoon popped into my head.

Okay. Now that I've cleared my mind, it's time for me to go back to studying.

  2. Tricia: You're welcome! :-)

    Kate: Thank you!
