Breathe in the pain; exhale the peace. Breathe in the anger; exhale the love. Breathe in the fear; exhale the courage. Breathe in the confusion; exhale the need to know. Breathe in the hurt; exhale the compassion. Breathe in the disappointment; exhale the gratitude. Breathe in the prison; exhale the freedom. Breathe in the control; exhale release. Breathe in the hesitation; breathe out the steps. Breathe in dying; exhale life.
Breathe through the feelings – especially the painful ones – feel them, let them express then allow them to be transformed back into the silence from which they came when your thought gave them life. Grieve them, allow them but do not make a bed in them. Rather chose the place to lay your head and your heart that brings you peace, joy. and love. Every though gives birth to feelings and feelings need to be acknowledged and allowed to have expression. They are real and you are alive because of all feelings – both those you enjoy and those you do not. Each feeling is just the flip side of the other and within the whole of them is where your being springs forth and that being that you are is awesome, fantastic, beautiful, alive, full of promise, and precious. Breathe that in and exhale the wonder that you are.
