Living symbolically

In yoga we call it a mantra, in church we call it a prayer, in parenting a teen with Asperger’s syndrome (well, parenting period) I call it ” focusing on values” or ” living symbolically”.
I change my focus from time to time. Right now my symbols/ values include-
Family – my kids, my husband. They’re all that matters.
Love- for myself, my marriage, my family, my passions, my health.
Flexibility- go with the flow, release expectations, relax standards, let it go.
Optimism- it will all work out for the best!
