A Year Of Changes

This year we are being faced with extreme fluctuations, not only with the environment but in our lives. Some of us have experienced changes in our health, finances, relationships, or jobs. And we may know of family and friends who are also experiencing some disruption in their lives. Although we understand that change is a natural part of life, when such extreme events occur it makes it more difficult to maintain balance. In times like these, it is more important than ever to be in the moment. We don't have to understand what is happening or why. Just breathe. Sometimes when we are thrown into a crisis, that's all we are capable of doing. The calmness of our breath amongst the chaos that surrounds us. Today, be aware of the changes that are occurring in your life. For just a moment, be still, and take a deep calming breath. Let the steadiness of your breathing lead you through the day. By balancing ourselves, we strengthen our mind, body, and spirit.

Even in the shadows, we can be calm...
