I decided to take some time off from blogging over the last couple weeks. I needed a break. I was not feeling worthy of sharing words. I just needed to breathe. Live life. Enjoy the moments of now.
Even though I knew that I was missing out on holiday celebrations, slices and stories, and one little word selections.
But I just can't keep up with it all. And I am okay with that too. I have "let it go ..."
My one little word was right there, waiting for me. I never really thought too much about it. But it's the reminder that I need in all aspects of my life these days ...
Breathe ... in the word of God, knowing He is in total control.
Breathe ... during moments of stress and chaos and busyness of life.
Breathe ... to close my mouth, open my ears, and listen more.
Breathe ... to find a more balanced life.
Breathe ... during exercise to help create a heathy body.
Breathe ... when I'm hungry to slow my cravings.
Breathe ... while I'm eating to enjoy each nourishing bite.
Breathe ... deeply at the end of a long day and capture a few memories in my journal.
Breathe ... to enjoy this life right now.
I'm optimistic about this year. We have quite a few milestones coming and reminding myself to breathe will be essential to enjoying the moments.
