This is the face I make when someone tells me to "Just Breathe."
Or I look like I wanna throw something at someone.
I don't know about you,
but when I'm feeling...
I don't wanna hear someone tell me to
"Just Breathe" through it.
Because in that moment,
I don't feel...
- nor do I want to.
And that's my honest truth.
It took me a long time to reclaim the power of my breath.
Deep breathing isn't about feeling calm.
When you take a deep breathe,
it's accessing your power to wash away life's stresses.
The stress is still there.
It's real, but it doesn't own you.
With your deep breathing,
you become stronger than your stress.
The stress lives outside rather than within you.
So this week,
if you feel
or like you wanna yell
-- Find your breath.
Breathe in the Power of You
with some deep belly breaths.
Whether your kids are fighting in the grocery store,
you skipped a meal,
the baby kept you up all night,
or you're seriously worried about ______,
the quickest way to connect with the strongest part of you is to...
Not to feel calm or peaceful
(although awesome if you do),
but rather to connect with your breath
- the strongest,
part of you.
So you can get through each moment
more fully connected to your highest self,
-- and keep stress outside, not within you.
This is the power of your breath.
just breathe, my friends.
just breathe. :)
You Got This.

Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
