APW Happy Hour

Finding peace and love and stuff


I took my kid to a family meditation a few days ago and spent an hour surrounded by people who were all about reaching inward instead of outward, who promoted calm introspection, as opposed to untempered emotional wilding out. It was my first time attending something like that, and both of us walked away from the experience feeling good and feeling focused. I’m hoping to carry those lessons learned into my life on the regular, and to also find a way to temper emotional stability and civic engagement.

In the interest of not rambling, I’ll bow out now and leave it to you—but I’d love to know how you guys are finding balance in the chaos.
