Do you have a minute? I promise it won’t take very long, just a minute or two. How often do you hear that yet you don’t take the time as you are too busy to take a minute to regroup, re-energize, and refocus? When you are excited about what’s going on in your life, take a minute to appreciate and celebrate it. When you are going through a time of strife and struggle, take a minute to breathe and be gentle with yourself. There are 525,600 minutes in a year, and just imagine what your life would be like if you were willing to spend a few of those minutes each day consciously thinking, speaking, and acting in a manner of living the life of your dreams.
Moving forward, I invite you to take a few minutes to:
Breathe deeply. Breathe in the goodness that surrounds you and exhale any fear. Breathe in fresh air when frustration arises to calm you. Breathe in love, health, happiness, and laughter.
Appreciate where you were, where you are, and where you are going. Appreciate the sweet easy minutes of your day. Appreciate the laughter you hear. Appreciate the challenging experiences that allow you to stretch and expand.
Love yourself, love others, and love life. We often get so busy we forget the reason we go about each day and that is to love, love, and love.
Mostly, my wish for you this week is to realize your power in each moment. YOU have the ability to breathe in goodness, love and happiness in just a minutes’ notice. You have the power to create a chain of minutes to hours to days to weeks to months to years filled with love, laughter, and deep happiness.
Until next time, do you have a minute?
With each minute I allow deeper love, laughter, and happiness into my life.
Words to Live By:
“Now: is the operative word. Everything you put in your way is just a method of putting off the hour when you could actually be doing your dream. You don’t need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating.” ~ Barbara Sher
“Take care in your minutes, and the hours will take care of themselves.” ~ Lord Chesterfield
“A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
