I have health insurance to shop for. I have articles to write. I have a course in development. I have to decide what to make for supper this evening. I have to plan the menu for the night before Christmas Eve when we’ll be celebrating with our kids; and then there’s the menu for Christmas Day with my siblings and mother. I have to spot-clean the house. I have to work on monetizing my passion. But most importantly, I have to breathe!!
How often have you told yourself that? To just stop, take a break, don’t fret about what needs to be done, or what you think needs to be done, and just feel what you’re feeling and – now, this is the kicker – accept it? Just be. Just be still. Just be quiet. Just breathe in and out. …. in and out…..
Stopping during any point of your day to concentrate on your breathing helps to reconfigure your center and focus. I did just that before I began writing this post – and there you have it – I’m almost done writing the article!
I also have renewed direction on which path to take when I’m done writing here. I’m excited for what I’m about to take on. It’s something new and risky, but it’s where I need to go to grow.
How about you? Do you know in which direction to go? What path will you take that will move you forward?
“The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci
