Pressure Release

"I want to wake up every day and do whatever comes in my mind, and not feel pressure or obligations to do anything else in my life." -Michael Jordan


I was texting with a colleague  and she asked me how it was going homeschooling my son, while trying to run a business. 

My response was that it is going "well".


She didn't believe me and said...."Is that true?"

My response:  Absolutely, because I'm not putting too much pressure on him or myself or anything for that matter.

I realized that this is actually my mantra right release the pressure.

on my son,
on my business,
on my expectations of others,

Cheers to being hopeful.

Hope is a waking dream.
