I got this idea from a fellow blogger over at Swallow a Spider. She created a box that contains safe distractions for when she's in a tough spot. I thought it was a fantastic idea, and have started assembling my own box. I really like the idea of having everything in one spot, easily accessible, in case of emergency. Sometimes when I get into that state of desperate panic where I don't quite know what to do with myself, well, this box could be a pretty handy tool.
Taped to the inside of the lid are phone numbers, in order of who to call first, so I don't have to look should I be that frazzled.
I still may put other things in, and the contents will likely change over time, but for now, I know that if I were in a tough spot, and I didn't know what else to do, pulling this box out would distract me, at least for a little while! (And even better, putting it together was a great distraction in itself!)
