If I were my own best friend I would remind myself to take time during the day to Breathe.
***We are entering such a busy and very very full time of year. These last two months of the year always seem to fly by me at breakneck speed. When I think about my “normal” day it often zooms by without a moment to sit and breathe. Now we are about to add “the holidays” to the normal mix of life.
Normally, the alarm goes off in the morning and the rest of the day runs directly into the afternoon, plows headlong into the early evening and sprints to the finish of the night without a break in between. Over the last few weeks I have been trying to consciously take moments throughout the day to pause. Breathe. Take in my surroundings. Some people would call this conscious living. And while I am by no means doing a great job of conscious living, I am trying to slow things down and be more appreciative of the individual moments and little things that make up this bigger picture I call “life”. It seems to help!
