Have you ever felt lost adrift on an ocean of uncertainty? Throughout these trying times, journaling can be the rudder helping us to maintain a steady course, and the words our heart has written become our North Star guiding us safely back home.
Today while journaling, maintain a degree of awareness on your breath. That’s it!
This week’s journal prompt is:
Week 38: “Taken one breath at a time, life reveals . . .”
Taken one breath at a time, life reveals mystery and intrigue at every turn. An adventure is always available, though I don’t always see it as such. There are times when I lose touch with my breath and the world seems to bear down upon me like a tractor trailer on an open highway in the middle of the night. At times, the weight of the world feels too heavy for my slight frame to bear, but then I remember: just breathe, bow, and smile.
Life may not always be ideal, but it is perfect nonetheless. I signed up for this journey although I never could have factored in all that I would encounter. I am responsible for it all: there is no option to throw up my hands or curl up in a ball. I know that this life that is living me, unrelenting, unconditionally, will not give me more than I can handle. And so I keep taking life one breath at a time, and life keeps revealing mystery and intrigue at every turn.
