I’ve seen this video a couple of times now, the most recent being early this morning. And since I had awakened still not knowing what I was meant to write for this post, I would say that the timing was (pardon me, but I can’t help myself) “heaven sent.” I do so appreciate it when I catch on to a nudge from the Universe!
The video is a very powerful example of positive self-talk. Evidently, though not shown here, there had just been a finger-pinching incident involving a door. Rightfully so, tears and a bit of indignation were involved. That darn door!
Mom starts off by having her little one take a deep breath, which, in and of itself, is stinkin’ cute (and a very valuable way to allow one’s energy to change course). Mom then asks her if she is ok, to which she says that she is. Then Mom has her repeat:
What a life lesson for us all to witness – and hopefully absorb! Pay attention to how her energy is transformed by the end. Look at her face and her body language, and then listen to what she says to her mom. A role model at two years old!
If you’ve already seen the video, watch it again. If you haven’t seen it, you’re in for a treat. Sorry about the ad and the news people, but that part goes quickly…
