Being Breath

One Word: Find Your Breath

A short post and a short lesson, both reflected upon during my run this morning.


Do not be afraid of your breath.

When you feel tense or angry or stressed or exhausted
be aware.

Find a delicious moment of peace in the
next
deeeeep
belly-drenching
heart-bursting
breath.

Now go on with your life.

Tell me - one word - in what situation do you promise yourself to find your breath today?

Mine?  Laundry.  (Back problems always kick in when I bend over to pull out clothes & I frequently hold my breath.  I find when I remember to breathe through it I find core strength that makes it much easier.)
