Take Your Breath Away

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the number of moments that take our breath away.”

I lovingly offer you these words by our wise friend, Anonymous, to serve as a guidepost as you move through your life this week.

I encourage you to ask yourself this question, “What am I doing to create space in my life and within myself to experience moments that take my breath away”?

I want you to know that it is as easy to change your life as it is to take a breath.

And here’s the way! Next time you notice something beautiful or something that feels good, take one conscious breath.

Let yourself thoroughly take in the delight and deliciousness of the moment.

Creating space for a beautiful life is that easy.

I encourage you to try a few of these simple practices.

Focus on the beauty of a flower.
Close your eyes and recall a special memory.
Watch your child at play or as they sleep.
Gaze in the mirror with love and compassion.
Read a poem out loud. Then read it again.
Bow down and touch the earth.
Look up at the moon.

My wish for you is a week infused with beautiful moments that you take the time to notice. Moments that you create.
