There is something to be said for living in the moment. Sometimes that is all you can do. Just breathe in and out and move through your day minute by minute without worrying about the next minute. I am not a big worrier - if you know me at all you know this. I don't worry about much of anything under normal circumstances. What is the point really. If things are beyond your control the only thing you are doing by worrying is stressing yourself out. That being said - I have plenty to worry about... think about... ponder. It likes to sneak its way into my brain - sometimes without me even realizing it. Like a slow, dark cloud moving across the sky and before you know it the warmth of the sun has turned into a downpour. This is when I say to myself - breathe - just like in bodyflow or yoga. Count to 8 as you breathe in and count to 8 as you breathe out. You are alive. You have people who love you and you have people you love. There is a bigger purpose for all of this that you can't see nor do you need to see. Live right now, in this moment, in this minute and breathe. The heart rate slows. The brain calms. The body settles. Life then becomes living.
