The word: Chaos is defined in several respected dictionaries as a state of extreme and complete confusion and disorder. The synonyms describing this same meaning of this Greek derived word are plenty: disorder, disarray, disorganization, confusion, mayhem, bedlam, pandemonium, havoc, turmoil, tumult, commotion, disruption, upheaval, uproar, maelstrom; muddle, mess, shambles, free-for-all; anarchy, lawlessness, entropy; hullabaloo, hoopla, train wreck, all hell broken loose.Chaos 101 013Well this is exactly how you can describe our situation here at the Ubuntu Wellness Center. Except for our treatment room and the Laughter Yoga hall (at times) every other space is in the above mentioned state of CHAOS.

Although chaotic by nature I need to see some order in my workspace and this is just NOT in the stars for the days to come. I just needed to accept this fact, or take the highway bare naked screaming and mumbling incoherent words till I reach the C-clinic, where I would be welcomed with some super strength calming injection cocktail.

Thank Heavens for my Hasya (Laughter) Yoga training. As a teacher you learn to stop craziness right in its tracks by immediately switching over to something super fun. It need not take long 5-10 minutes will do the trick.That is exactly what I did today.

Yes, a big box of multi grain flower I bought long time ago for my Kibra Bus (Curacao pastry) or Drigidek (Aruba pastry) recipes in which my goal was to bake one of these strange name pastries just for fun.

So I pulled up my sleeves dove into the kitchen and 1 hour later.. here they are….!

Chaos 101 009After this simple and fun intermezzo, all came back to normal, my name was tranquility. Boxes were filled, labeled, and sealed. The rooms were swept and mopped and there was ORDER! Till the next day. When I could start all over again with Chaos 101…..
