Breathe

Just a reminder to take a deep breath. When the pace of business in life goes from fast to seemingly tornadic or when it seems the stressful is starting to outweigh the peaceful, pause, and take a breath. Remember, things can always be better, and they can always be worse (much worse). Ultimately, you can face the pace or the stress more effectively if you are grounded by that perspective.

New challenges will present themselves perpetually; that is gauranteed, but you only have limited time on this earth.  Don't get caught up in your own head, in the whirlwind of activity or in the negative energy others can create. Take a pause, take a breath, and smile. You only have so many minutes with others around you - make the most of it by taking a deep breath, keeping things in perspective, and beeing that sense of calm, that pilar of strength, that friend or leader that you know you can be.

  1. I recently came across this article by one of my fave writers on Forbes on shedding needy, aonxious energy: http://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelellsberg/2011/08/31/nix-your-neediness-now/

    Read them reminded me of the article. :) Ellsberg says that one strange thing that's helped him put things in perspective and "take a mental breather" is meditating on the fact that nothing is infinite and that we all share mortality. Stepping back can make everything else seem so small! :)

    Anyways, a good reminder that everyone probably needs from time to time!

I have not been as lucky to be in the presence of phenomenal women as you spoke about in a previous blog but I thank you for taking time out of your day to give me words of encouragement to send me on my journey to create ripples as you have with so many others that was in earshot of your voice when you spoke that day at WFF. .
