Take a pause…just for a moment. Forget about deadlines, bills, news coverage, social media, your job and also the person that cut you off today and just….breathe.
Now take another breath and now another. If you’re outside, close your eyes and feel the sun or the wind on your skin…breathe. If your inside, lean your head back, close your eyes and…breathe.
Life is moving very quickly and we are all so preoccupied worrying about the endless “little” things that make up our daily routine. Am I successful enough, do “friends” like my posts, am I socially acceptable and so on and so on.
The day ends, we go to sleep, wake up and do it again. As if we’re on auto pilot.
Focus on the IMPORTANT THINGS like making amazing family memories, helping others succeed, educating the next generation and being that person others would want to be.
Not because you’re rich, famous or perfect but because you’re genuine, compassionate and walk in integrity.
Can you do that? Can you pause and just breathe for a moment? When you open your eyes don’t see all that the world expects of you.
INSTEAD SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR SOMEONE ELSE. A simple smile can go a long way. Everything else is just noise.
“Everyone dies but not everyone truly lives”….go into your day and really live.
