Nov 05, 2011 Becoming Zen Now that our son is here, I have become more relaxed and more patient. I thought I would have more anxiety and stress, but that is simply not the case…..yet. This morning I waited about 3 hours for my son to wake up. I could have easily woken him up, but I just waited. I watched some television, ate my breakfast, and sat on my sofa while he was sleeping. Normally, I am running around with my head cut off, trying to accomplish the most in the least amount of time, but not today. I find myself enjoying the simple moments in the day. One of my followers told me to be “Zen” about things. I think I have moved towards this attitude.
