When you start to look around
Left and Right
Up or Down
When you go about your day,
Sometimes things don’t go your way.
You may run into something scary.
You may lose your temper when you’re weary.
It’s easy to be SAD.
It’s easy to be MAD.
Whatever it may be,
Whether it’s good or bad,
It’s always better to be a Mindful Cat.
When BAD things do happen,
We take a BIG breath in
And when we breathe out,
We let it out with a MEOWWW!
This way, we are always in control
No matter which way our emotions go.
Mindful Cats always know,
we will all feel sad and we will all feel mad.
But, Mindful Cats have the power to choose --
When to make sadness snooze
and not to let anger loose.
Invite Happy and Glad out to play
That is what a Mindful Cat would say!
Mindful Cats can face all things bad
and say out loud, I am stronger than that!
If we put on our finest thinking caps,
we can all be Mindful Cats!
So, tonight, when you go to bed,
Clear ALL the thoughts from your head,
Take one BIG breath in,
Let it out with a MEOWWW
Say out loud, “I am a Mindful Cat!”
Say goodbye to Sad and Mad,
Say goodnight to Happy and Glad,
So, tomorrow, when we start a new day
A Mindful Cat is here to stay.
