Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the mean reds.
If you haven’t seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s – you really should. I know … I know it is a terrible cliche but it is more than a movie. It is about life and love and … all of it really.
The reason I am writing about it today is because it is in that movie that I first heard about The Mean Reds. Here’s the whole quote.
Don’t you just love it.
I woke up this morning with the Mean Reds. Really mean.
In a perfect world I would have gone back to bed and not got up again until they had gone away. But that wasn’t going to work out. I have 3 kids to get to school and a client waiting for me to write 6 new articles about Finance.
So, instead I meditated for 10 minutes using a guided meditation. It didn’t cure me but the panic subsided. And then I made myself a pot of Licorice tea (which is way better than it sounds) and made myself some egg and soldiers.
Definitely not cured yet but looking it in the eye and treating it seemed to help.
