Just Breathe



After spending the last couple of days recovering from the asthma attack from hell “Just Breathe” takes on a whole new meaning. How we neglect to appreciate the ability to take a deep breath in!

So, today instead of rushing through your one guarenteed day, take a moment and be grateful for something. Think about how simple but lovely the ability to just breathe is.

It won’t take long, I promise. 

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.

This is the story of a new business, a new nonprofit, and a new "me". I'm not new to the whole reinvention process. I've done this a couple of times. But, this time, I feel like all of the past versions of "me" are coming together to create something really exciting. That doesn't mean I still don't have moments of doubt and out right fear! I am going forward and taking a chance and I'm excited about it, well, mostly. I have started a business and I've structured the business so that there is a donation to a charity, that I've created, built in to every transaction. The charity will raise funds to help single mothers and other women living below the poverty line start their own businesses by providing grants and micro-lending opportunities. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and I would really enjoy being able to give or receive some words of encouragement or share with others trying to make changes in their own lives. All the best to you!

  1. I’m hoping today is better…The advice you suggest is perfect of course – some days that is all you have to do..just breathe. One moment at a time.. I hope you’re on the mend soon and in the interim are treating yourself to the pleasure of your breath – and maybe some warm liquids too? :-)

  2. Glad to see thing are better. We all need some of your “just breathe” advice. Just took a big one in your honor. Just breathe….so simple and so true. Thanks Mo

I'd love to know what you think
