Breathe...

Love this!



So I barely gave 2012 a thought, just another year, but when I saw Herding Kats in Kindergarten's post about a One Little Word resolution I got to thinking. I wanted it to just come to me, and over a rushed mouthful of raspberries I thought, I really should breathe when I eat... HA! isn't that a result of 30 20 15 minute lunches!

My OLW is really appropriate though, not just for when I'm snacking. :)
When I checked in with my doctor a week after surgery he wanted to see me bend my knee. My muscles and my mind clearly resisted the movement after keeping my leg straight for so long. He laughed at me and said, "BREATHE, girl!" and sure enough I could bend it a full 90 degrees!
I do tend to tighten up around all kinds of stress- physical, mental, and emotional... My OLW will remind me to get back up to the "driver's seat" of my brain instead of my more emotional or survival state. This is nothing new, I heard it over and over during various trainings, but a daily mantra would help me throughout the year. :)

On another note, some thanks need to be given!

I know what you mean. It is important to take time to breathe. Our jobs can be so stressful with all the spinning plates we keeping in the air..... but taking time to breathe really does help calm yourself down and then handle a rough situation better..

Love you blog!
