Girl Fight!

This winter we have been pretty obsessed with Wii Fit Plus. It is an awesome way to get exercise and be indoors at the same time. We all have our favorites, along with nicknames for the games we like the best.

Beebz's favorite is one from plain old Wii Fit, where you sit on the balance board and focus on a candle. It is called Lotus Focus. The point is to be still and peaceful, even with distractions (the game does some funny stuff to try to surprise you, like footsteps in the background, panning around the candle, and other things. She loves it. And she is not bad. The only mystery is her name for it: GIRL FIGHT!!!

Ah, the Zen of Girl Fight. It makes sense in a way, since we are in a constant struggle between that part of us that wants to be peaceful and our monkey mind that distracts us for any reason or no reason at all. It is an internal struggle that we face. That part of us that wants to be distracted, the part of us that wants to focus, and all the parts in between, all working together to create the tapestry of our lives.

Who knew what an amazing philosopher she could be?
